Statistics like this are shocking to read but a stark reminder that lion (and so many other animals across the continent) are far from safe from extinction.
So, what can you do? First of all, spread the word about conservation, endangered species, poaching, you name it! If we talk about the problem and educate others, we can begin the process of change. Secondly, if you would like to donate to one of our wildlife conservation projects, click on the link in our bio. Every little amount helps and we thank you so much in advance! 🦁

Lion Love – a mothers embrace 🦁 ❤️ Kenya’s Lions Could be Extinct in the Next Two Decades
The African lion population has declined by 43% in the last 20 years and lions now occupy only 8% of their historical range in Africa. The estimated numbers of lions across Africa are approximately 20,000. In Kenya, the national population now numbers less than 2,000 individuals. At current rates of decline, the species could become extinct here within the next two decades. This reduction in lion numbers is primarily due to habitat loss and conflict with humans, typically when lions kill people’s livestock. 📷 @dearwildlife
