Remote Trail Cameras to Study Lions

Gorongosa National Park was once famous for its lion population, but during Mozambique’s struggle for independence and subsequent civil war, the park’s iconic wildlife suffered. In 2008, a massive ecosystem restoration project began.

Today, many animals are bouncing back in large numbers, but it’s unclear if the lions are also making a strong recovery. The Gorongosa Lion Project is using trail cameras to identify new lions and gather data about their behavior.
