"Lions will be extinct in our lifetime"
Dan Ashe, US Fish & Wildlife Director
Lions are the most iconic animal on the planet. They symbolize strength, courage and justice.
100 years ago there were over 200,000 wild lions living in Africa. Today, they are extinct in 26 countries.
Can you imagine a world without “The Lion King”?
There are only 20,000 remaining in the wild. That is less than the number of people at a Lakers Basketball game in Los Angeles.
They are being hunted to extinction.
