Anderson Expeditions has committed to supporting the SATIB Conservation Trust and is currently focusing these efforts on the Hwange Lion Research Project.
The Hwange Lion Research Project, is aimed at understanding, managing and conserving the lion population of Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park through the collection of valuable long-term monitoring data of population demographics, ecology and behaviour.
Anti-poaching is also a priority because illegal snaring has been shown to have a significant impact on lions. The project employs anti-poaching scouts who patrol the park alongside the Parks and Wildlife Management Authority.
Anderson Expeditions has undertaken (since late 2014) to assist towards the salaries of the Anti Poaching Unit who prevent the slaughter and poaching of Hwange’s animals. For every safari booked in southern Africa, Anderson Expeditions contributes $250 to the salaries of the APU members. In time we hope to introduce additional initiatives to further support the work of SATIB Conservation Trust and Hwange Lion Research Project.
