ORYX in conversation with Dr. Amy Dickman
Dr. Amy Dickman is part of WildCru, the conservation department at the University of Oxford. She has been working in Africa for 20 years and has spent the last nine working in Tanzania particularly in the Ruaha landscape where she founded the Ruaha Carnivore Project.
Tanzania is the most important country for lion conservation as it is home to half of the global population, with at least a tenth of the population living in Ruaha itself.
In this video Fergus Beeley, the director of ORYX, talks to Dr Amy Dickman about Lions, conservation and her work in Ruaha.
Amy says that:
“people are always amazed by how threatened lions are globally…. it means that now there are actually fewer lions left than Rhinos”.
