Dr Amy Dickman discusses how to make lions worthwhile to the people who live with them
At the Jackson Hole Film Festival, WildCRU’s Dr Amy Dickman was interviewed by Jeffrey Parrish of the Wildlife Conservation Network for their Lion Recovery Fund Facebook page. They discuss Dr Dickman’s work in Ruaha at the Ruaha Carnivore Project, and how lions need to become a net benefit to those who live near them.
“These people live on less than a dollar a day, but yet they are sitting on an internationally significant resource. It’s a resource that is shrinking fast, and could be a huge vehicle for them to get in money internationally, and development funding.”
