About Us

OUR MISSION

The African Lion and Environmental Research Trust (ALERT) is dedicated to a multi-disciplinary approach for the facilitation and promotion of sound conservation and management plans for the African lion (Panthera leo) and the ecosystems on which the species relies. 

Through responsible development we aim to realize the species’ potential to provide substantial social, cultural, ecological and economic benefits, that are distributed equitably amongst stakeholders to promote sustainable motivation in them for the protection of Africa’s natural heritage.

ALERT collaborates with communities and policy makers, with non-governmental organizations, researchers and business leaders, to implement locally conceived and relevant solutions that aim to create sustainable motivation in these stakeholder groups to conserve lions. 

ALERT also works with communities to meet the challenges of living alongside a dangerous predator, whilst conducting research to improve our understanding of the lion’s behaviour in Africa’s ecosystems to better inform decision making.

ALERT is successfully operating pilot programs of our ‘responsible development’ approach in Zimbabwe and Zambia. Other countries have expressed interest in ALERT assisting them to conserve lions, and we expect our approach to expand across the continent until we have achieved real protection of the African lion that ensures their survival.
