Paola Bouley heads the Gorongosa Lion Project, an effort to document lions’ response to the park’s restoration and identify any factors that may be limiting their recovery. Working with Mozambican researchers Celina Dias and Domingas Alexio, Bouley is using GPS satellite collars and trail cameras to identify new lions and gather data about their behavior. These tools are also proving invaluable in protecting lions against poachers.
