Niassa Lion Project is working alongside the Niassa Reserve and Mozambican Government to create harmony between the wildlife and people living within a vast area of wilderness. They fae a number of serious challenges to protect the safety of the carnivores and the purity of the rivers while cultivating a mentality of conservation among the local people.

All mining inside the reserve is illegal. In the area run by Niassa Lion Project there is unlicensed gold mining activity. In the processing of the gold these miners are often found to be using toxic chemicals.
