World Lion Day
August 10 was World Lion Day and it is worth taking stock on how these magnificent animals are doing in the wild. With Cecil the lion, and his untimely death showed, many people around the world hold lion in deep affection.
The current situation is a mixture of good and bad news. To deal with the bad first, the number of lion in Western, Central and East Africa have decreased by 60% over the past 21 years. However the better news is that their numbers have increased by 12% over the same period in Botswana, Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe.
It is encouraging that Rwanda realises the value of having lion in its National Parks and has re-introduced 15 lion to their Akagera National Park – the last time lion were seen here was 15 years ago.
The King of the Jungle needs all the friends it can get. If you want to discuss seeing these beautiful animals in their natural habitat just get in touch.
