As a veterinarian, CWF Manager Richard Hoare has previously organized advisory, practical and financial support for assistance to an existing LION GUARDIAN Cattle Boma Project run by Oxford based HWANGE LION RESEARCH (HLR). This add on cattle production improvement project was to assist poor rural villagers participating in the Boma project to better care for their cattle. By introducing identification and ear tagging, detailedanimal records, vaccination protocolsand veterinary treatments,meaningful improvements in cattle production can be achieved. There is great potential for expansion of this initiative under CWF – of course subject to funding.
Cattle are of massive cultural, social and financial importance to rural farmers and great enthusiasm and participation was shown for this supportive project.
We would like it to continue!
