Back in 2011 it was decided that our web site needed a rethink. And so ALERT called in dozens of people from designers, researchers and developers (who offered their services heavily discounted or free) to start work on a project that would last almost exactly a year.
We felt that the architecture of the site needed updating to present our complex aims, approach and progress in a more user friendly and aesthetically pleasing way. And in doing so we wanted to create the greatest resource about lion conservation on the web. After thousands of hours of work, this is the result.
We sincerely hope that we have done a good job in explaining our approach to lion conservation in a manner accessible for the layman, but also with detail that meets the needs of the specialist. Our resource sections will attempt to stay at the forefront of what is happening on the ground across Africa in lion conservation, whilst our news sections will keep you fully updated on our projects' progress.
And of course we have redeveloped the ways that you can support our work. You now have more and easier options to show your support. Without your support our work is not possible, cannot develop and cannot achieve its aims. But together, using a wide range of approaches and in cooperation with communities, government, other NGOs, academics and business we will continue to seek solutions to ensuring a wild Africa for future generations.
