Still image from Tracking Lion Recovery in Gorongosa National Park

Gorongosa National Park was once famous for its lion population. However, during Mozambique’s struggle for independence and subsequent civil war, the park’s iconic wildlife was slaughtered. In 2008, a massive ecosystem restoration project began. Today, many animals are bouncing back in large numbers, but it is unclear if the lions are also making a strong recovery. Paola Bouley heads the “Gorongosa Lion Project,” an effort to document the lions’ response to the park’s restoration and identify any factors that may be limiting their recovery.
