Type Support for protected area management
Location Kafue National Park, Zambia
Grant Amount $104,000
Duration 1 year

Funding was provided to Panthera to support the anti-poaching unit that they have established in the Busanga plains of northern Kafue National Park. The Busanga Plains is an area of high value for lion conservation and for tourism. However, it is also an area that is severely impacted by bushmeat poaching. This grant will ensure an anti-poaching presence throughout the year and thus help to secure the core lion habitat of Kafue National Park.
