Since African Lion Safari opened in 1969, the park has worked towards the conservation and preservation of many endangered and threatened species. Over the years, the park has continued to employ a philosophy of working closely with all of its birds and animals and today has gained a reputation as an international conservation facility for some of the world’s most endangered species.

Research and Development plays an integral part of conservation initiatives. The several research methods listed below are not mutually exclusive, as the findings from one can assist in the development of another. African Lion Safari’s goal is to develop, facilitate and implement research that will help to ensure the long-term sustainability of in situ and ex situ populations.
