Since 1973 the Endangered Wildlife Trust has been working to protect endangered African species from extinction. Its programmes balance humans' needs for resources against those of wild animals by sustainably conserving their habitats.
Wild lions have been released in the Mountain Zebra National Park after they were hunted to extinction in the area more than a century ago. The zebra population is now a healthy 800, along with several large antelope species, enough to support the lions.
