Who is ALERT?
ALERT is a nonprofit organisation dedicated to the conservation of the African lion and the ecosystems on which the species rely on. Neither lions nor humans can survive in isolation; both are reliant on functional ecosystems.
As such we seek to engage in activities that conserve all of Africa’s wild species, as well as the ecosystems within which they live and on which we rely.
To ensure viable populations of African lions are maintained as an integral part of functional ecosystems and to assist in maintaining the biodiversity of the ecosystems they live in
ALERT is dedicated to a multi-disciplinary approach to conservation This involves a more holistic approach to conservation where the full eco system is studied including large predator prey species and other key species such as elephants. Woven into the fabric of our approach is the very important involvement of surrounding communities who lie alongside the Protected Areas and who often suffer from conflicts with wildlife. Our conservation education and classroom support allows us the opportunity to spread the importance of conservation to the young, and to involve teachers, community leaders and children in caring for wildlife and the environment.
All of our projects are created to address a need and are designed to be relevant to the environment, context and needs.
Our team is made up of hard-working individuals dedicated to protecting the people and wildlife of Africa.
Together we can achieve more which is why we strive to ensure that we collaborate and partner with all key stakeholders and as many interested people as possible
