There are now fewer wild lions left in the world than rhinos
At an estimated 20,000 wild lions in Africa today, we have lost 90% over the past century to habitat destruction, prey loss, conflict with people over livestock depredation, and illegal hunting for body parts.
Today, more than half of the wild lions remaining live in unprotected range lands, shared with people and livestock.
To secure lions and other large carnivores in the wild, we must make their conservation valuable to the people who share the landscape with them.
In this partnership between Lion Landscapes and The Peregrine Fund, we focus on protecting community livelihoods, vultures and lions, through our Lion Rangers, Community Coexistence Training and Collaring for Coexistence programs. More information.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
We're now raising funds for a Rapid Response Unit to be able to reach communities in Laikipia during Covid-19
and help them to coexist with large carnivores.
Together we can Save wild lions and promote co-existence.
