Notice that we did not say “Tomorrow we celebrate World Lion Day”.
There is little to celebrate. Every time an actual census is taken in Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Tanzania… lion numbers decrease from what we were told was there in the past.
Some still think that there are over 30,000 lions in Africa. Think again.
We are in a big crisis for lions. One of our most iconic species will soon be gone.
Is there hope?
Yes there is. It will require hard work and lots of energy. We at LionAid do this every day.
We wish you all a wonderful World Lion Day – it will be if you join the cause now and help us stop the decline of Africa’s most iconic species.
