World Lion Day

August 10, 2021


Today is World Lion Day, when we celebrate the king of beasts and reflect on the significance of lions as their future remains precarious. Lions have captivated most of us since childhood, serving as an iconic symbol of Africa and one of the most recognizable wildlife species throughout the world. Yet in just a quarter century, their numbers have declined by half due to pervasive threats like poaching, conflict with humans, habitat destruction, and loss of connectivity across their historic range.
