Where have all the lions gone?
In less than 50 years the African lion
may be extinct in the wild!
LIONAID is a campaigning charitable organisation with a mission to raise public and media awareness of the plight of African lions and direct charitable funds towards effective research and support initiatives.
Based in Dover, Kent, with partners in Africa, LIONAID has a programme of innovative and attention-grabbing initiatives across the UK. Keep an eye on the media and in your local city centre for LIONAID's striking and thought-provoking activities.
LIONAID's aim is to expose the difficult issues surrounding conservation of lion populations in Africa. The plight of the lions is not related just to habitat. There are difficult social, economic and political issues influencing decisions that affect lion populations and their environment. LIONAID is not afraid to talk about these issues and challenge the status quo in relation to lion conservation.
And the status quo does need challenging. Clearly efforts to preserve and support lion populations is failing as their numbers continue to decrease drastically - from an estimated 200,000 in the 1960s to just 20,000 today.
Who doesn't admire this beautiful, unique and iconic creature? Can you imagine a world where lions are extinct? What a terrible loss that would be. Yet that is the where the current path leads.
