Ethiopia is one of the largest and most diverse countries in Africa, with an impressive natural heritage and it is here that Born Free Foundation Ethiopia (BFFE) was officially established in 2008 to support the conservation and welfare of wild animals in Ethiopia, especially by tackling illegal trade and ownership. Born Free's support for wildlife conservation in this region however began many years previously with funding support for the Ethiopian Wolf Conservation Programme (EWCP). Today, working closely with the Ethiopian Wildlife Conservation Authority (EWCA), BFFE has a remit to provide assistance in many areas of wildlife protection.

The census, conducted earlier this year as part of a long-term lion monitoring project undertaken by Kenya Wildlife Service in collaboration with Born Free, and sponsored by the charity’s global partner, Land Rover, estimated as many as 79 lions* may be living in and around the park.
