The LionAid Conference in Johannesburg on the conservation needs and status of African lions is now going ahead with eleven African range states – and more might join in the next few days. So far, from west to south to east we have Senegal, Nigeria, Cameroon, Namibia, South Africa, Mozambique, Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya, and Ethiopia sending their delegates representing Wildlife Management and Scientific Authorities. During the two days of the Conference much will need to be discussed, and we will aim to have the African range states represent their comprehensive conservation plans for remaining lion populations.
We have structured the conference agenda to allow the maximum of free discussion among delegates. African lion conservation is the responsibility of African lion range states, and must be addressed with African solutions.
We are extremely grateful to all the represented nations for sending their delegates. It will be a Conference that will set lion conservation priorities for years to come, and we also thank the UK Government for making funds available to contribute to this important meeting.
