Lions: 1, Poachers: 0. When it comes to snare removal, we play for the home team.
This lioness got caught in a snare which tightly gripped around her neck, all while wearing a collar. We had to remove the collar to allow the wound to heal. Now, we've put back on a GPS/VHF collar and as a bonus, she's pregnant!
This successful mission was carried out in partnership with ANAC and Zambeze Delta Conservation (ZDC) at Coutada 11.
