Desert Lion Conservation Trust

In 1998 Dr Philip Stander started an intensive research project on the desert lions, termed The Desert Lion Conservation Project and, it is a small non-profit organisation dedicated to the conservation of desert - adapted lions in the Northern Namib.

Their main focus is to collect important base-line ecological data on the lion population and to study their behaviour, biology and adaptation to survive in the harsh environment. We then use this information to collaborate with other conservation bodies in the quest to find a solution to human-lion conflict, to elevate the tourism value of lions, and to contribute to the conservation of the species.
