Identifying each and every individual is essential to accurately obtain true density estimates of lions and cheetahs and keep track of pride dynamics. Each individual is provided with a unique ID code and as soon as we get proper ID photographs, the coded lions and cheetahs get their own ID card, which is then put into catalogues.
Here you can find many of MPCP’s lion and cheetah catalogues that will help you to identify the individuals you may encounter on your safari. We try as much as possible to update the catalogues as regularly as possible, but because there are very many individuals, especially lions, at times we cannot keep up to date with this. We therefore welcome you to help us with photographs that can be used to update lions and cheetahs ID cards.
