An assessment of trade, mortalities and anthropogenic threats facing lions in Tanzania and Mozambique


In recent years, several studies have highlighted concerns about an emerging and increasing trade in African Lion parts and derivatives both domestically within African countries, and internationally to Asian markets. However, the extent and impact of this trade on lion populations in Africa remains undocumented across most of their range.
