This page contains a library of conservation strategies and plans related to African lion conservation and may help to guide managers and decision makers when researching existing policies and planning future conservation strategies. The links included contain downloadable PDFs and reports, with each document tagged by country.
A link to the Strategic Guidelines for Lion Conservation in Africa will be published here as soon as the document is developed by a working group coordinated by the Cat Specialist Group, involving members from lion Range States and experts.
