In August 2020, the Kenyan government announced that the number of lions living in Kenya had increased by 25% to roughly 2500. Current 2021 research shows the population is continuing to grow.
There is an enormous push by conservation organisations in Kenya to work with communities and help mitigate human-wildlife conflict and support the co-existence between people and wildlife. This forward-thinking and sustainable approach to conservation is yielding great results and being applauded by President Uhuru Kenyatta – “(Wildlife) is our heritage, this is our children’s legacy… it is something we should carry with pride”.
As the number of lions living in Kenya continues to grow, let us protect this magnificent species for future generations. 🦁
