LIONS HAVE GONE FROM 450,000
29
With The Lion King premiering worldwide this week (Friday to Friday), like to take this opportunity to post a friendly reminder of how the species is actually doing. The mighty creature is quickly nearing extinction at the hands of us humans, with lions having gone from 450,000 to as few as 20,000 just years! For several of us, that's within our lifetime!
The lion population has decreased by nearly in the 21 years, despite being declared vulnerable in 1896. Lions are already extinet In 26
Afrlean countries and have vanished from over
95% of their historic range, the main causes being human-inflicted, such as poaching, destruction of habitat, poisoning, illegal bushmeat trade and trophy hunting.
Historic distribution
Present distribution
Imagine showing the next generation The Lion King and explaining that it's an animal that used to exis?, much like mammoths or saber-toothed tigers.
That's where we're currently heading, ard at an alarming speed!
Please feel free to post tips and links in the comment section on what can be done, how people can help and what organizations to donate to. Together, hopefully we'll be able to prevent the historical catastrophe of eradicating one of the world's most iconic animals!
Thank you for your
