Data from: Effective implementation of age restrictions increases selectivity of sport hunting of the African lion

Colleen M. Begg, Jennifer R. B. Miller & Keith S. Begg
1. Sport hunting of wildlife can play a role in conservation but can also drive population declines if not managed sustainably. Previous simulation modelling found that large felid species could theoretically be hunted sustainably by restricting harvests to older individuals that have likely reproduced. Several African countries currently use age-based hunting for lions although the outcomes have yet to be evaluated in a wild population. 2. Here we provide the first empirical evidence that a...
