Profound appreciation goes to the @LeonardoDiCaprioFdn for your incredibly generous $1M commitment to Lion Recovery Fund! Our collaborative work with innovative grantees towards doubling the number of lions in Africa just got that much stronger, smarter, faster, and more creative. THANK YOU!

Lion mothers often carry their small cubs by mouth, until the cubs can walk well on their own (or protest enough to resist it). #lion #lioncub #instacat #catsofinstagram #masaimara #africa #wildlife #wildlifephoto #naturelovers #animalkingdom #cuteanimals #cutealert #babyanimals #bestoftheday #naturephotography

It takes smart tactics to save lions. The African Wildlife Foundation helps farmers predator–proof their livestock enclosures. This strategy keeps lions from falling victim to retaliatory killings.

The Lion Recovery Fund is supporting the amazing work of @africanparksnetwork as they assume management and increase the law enforcement in Pendjari National Park in Benin. πŸ‡§πŸ‡―πŸ¦ #lion #lions #lionking #lionrecovery #wildlife #Africa #nationalparks #safari #DYK #picoftheday #photooftheday #africansafari #animals #instadaily #conservation #animalsofinstagram #instagood #beautiful #wildlifephotography #cats #bigcats

Lion cubs are extremely vulnerable in their first years of life with a 60-70% mortality rate. They face predators from jackals to leopards to hyenas, and are sometimes even killed by male lions in a takeover of the pride.

Male lions defend the pride’s territory while females do most of the hunting. Despite this, the males eat first.

The vast Niokolo-Koba national park holds the last remaining population of lions in Senegal. Rather than let this country's national symbol go extinct, our grantee @PantheraCats is establishing ranger bases, a radio network, and resources to cover operational costs to make the park a truly safe place for the lion population to grow and thrive. ❀️ #lion #lions #lionrecovery #wildlife #Africa #cub #cubs #lioness #nationalparks #safari #DYK #picoftheday #photooftheday #africansafari #animals #instadaily #animalsofinstagram #instagood #wildlifephotography #bigcats

Lions are the national symbol of Senegal, and they are at dire risk of going extinct in that country. The last remaining population in Niokolo-Koba National Park has fewer than 50 lions. But with greater protection, we along with our grantee on the ground @pantheracats agree that the park could support hundreds, which is exactly what we are working towards now. Panthera is establishing a secure zone within the park with key infrastructure including a radio network and ranger bases. Ensuring that rangers and bases are fully resourced is absolutely critical on the path to #savelions.

Repost @EwasoLions:
Nanai and her young boy who have stayed close together over the past few months. He is now alone as Nanai is mating with the new males. We will be keeping a close eye on him as he moves through the landscape. #lion #ewasolions #cub #male #dispersal
