Dinder – The third phase of the African Lion Protection Project was launched today in the Dinder reserve. The project was organized by the Wildlife Research Center with the participation of Dr. Johannes Bohr, a Dutch expert and researcher, and an activist in the field of big cats and the African lion group.
Dr. Amir Awad, Director of the Wildlife Research Center in Sudan, said in a statement to SUNA that the project has entered its third year and achieved positive results, especially after the transition from traditional to scientific, by introducing equipment and systems, indicating the importance of the project in determining the movement of lions inside the reserve in quantity and quality. Considering that lions are one of the big cat species threatened with extinction in the world.
He added that the project is conducting research on the multiplicity of prey species and their presence in the reserve, praising the success of the project to be a real addition to studies and research to help the World Center for Environment and Wildlife in the world, praising the role played by the Sudanese researcher despite the obstacles that hinder the work, represented by the lack of scientific and practical equipment.
Dr. Johannes praised the role that the Dinder Reserve Police continued to play in preserving the wild wealth of Sudan, especially the vegetation and forests, which are among the reasons for the existence of wildlife and the preservation of endangered wildlife in the world, especially the lions and the Kumpur, which have become extinct in a large number of African countries.
Referring to the UN slogan: Do one thing to save the world’s big cats, including lions.
Johannes stressed that the Dinder Reserve is one of the most important reserves in the world because of its unparalleled environmental and biological diversity in the African countries, which requires international organizations to support the Dinder Reserve to be a global (bank) for all environmental and biological diversity.
