Populating Malawi with lions
Repopulating the parks in Africa that have been crippled by years of war and civil unrest has become an increasingly common practice to encourage wildlife diversity. Malawi a small country sharing it's borders with Tanzania Mozambique and Zambia recently transferred 9 lions into Liwonde National park to help bring back the populations wiped out by hunting and poaching. In a bid to boost tourism dollars by introducing animals that have long been gone the country hopes to create a wildlife haven to attract tourist all over the world wanting to experience the amazing animals of Africa. The income it generates is enormous and worth cultivating as well as creating a wonderful and balanced environment with top predators. The idea that hunting these animals attracts dollars is a short lived idea. Far better to nurture the living that go on to birth new generations of unique animals.
