Beyond Cecil: Africa's Lions in Crisis

On World Lion Day 2017, Africa’s Lions Face Crisis

Two years after the illegal killing of Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe put lions into world headlines, Africa’s lions face a continuing crisis.

Over the past two decades, the African lion population has declined by an estimated 43%, with only 20,000 lions remaining across the entire continent. Habitat loss, poaching for bushmeat, and conflict with livestock owners are the primary killers of Africa’s lions today. Compared to trophy hunting, these threats combined are estimated to kill five to ten times as many lions each year.
