African Large Predator Research Unit
The larger African predators are good indicators of the well-being of the natural environment, specifically the habitat and prey species. Thus, the focus of ALPRU is broader than the larger African predators and includes important aspects of the prey animal base and their habitat. Wild animal species are also maintained in captive environments, therefore the focus and activities of ALPRU include both in situ and ex situ populations.
