Lions, are a flagship species for conservation success in Africa; their presence indicative of healthy, biodiverse ecosystems.
There are now less wild lions in the world than there are rhinos, making landscapes supporting lions more valuable than they have ever been.
For lions to survive, wildlife rich ecosystems must be more valuable than alternate land uses to local people and governments.
The sale of premium REDD+ carbon offsets, from protecting standing forests and biodiversity, makes the sustainable management of biodiverse ecosystems valuable to local people.
Not all carbon offsets are equal. Lion Carbon offsets mitigate global climate change through the protection of forests, and also works to create biodiversity-rich landscapes where both people and wildlife can thrive.
30 year habitat protection agreements have been secured with local Chiefdoms over 1 million hectares of important wildlife habitat, and growing.
