There's just over 20,000 wild lions now, down from 200,000 lions a century ago. But together, through collective and strategic efforts, we can—and we will—turn that trend around. ❤️

Lion prides may include up to three males, a dozen females who are all related to one another, and their young. Male lions only stay with their pride until they're about two years old before setting out to take over another pride. 📸: Susan McConnell

Lionesses usually remain with the same pride their entire lives. They share the responsibilities of raising their young— often leaving their cubs to be fed and cared for by other females while they hunt. ❤️ #savelions #lion #lions #lionrecovery #lionking #cub #cubs #lioness #sistersforever #Africa #africanbush #wildlife #wildlifephotography #DYK #nationalparks #safari #picoftheday #photooftheday #africansafari #animals #instadaily #familyfirst #animalsofinstagram #conservation #catsofinstagram #instagood #cats #wildcats #bigcats

Lions have been an icon of strength for all of humanity. Now we must be that for them. Let's protect them together.

Malawi is a country with a very small lion population where the species is at risk of going extinct. In 2018, Lion Recovery Fund will be covering the costs for our grantee @africanparksnetwork to reintroduce lions into Malawi's Liwonde National Park. 🦁🎉 Original image by Steve Mandel.

To actually #savelions, organizations must work together. That's why Lion Recovery Fund is working on a continental scale through collaboration with multiple lion conservation organizations. Follow the link in our bio to contribute to saving lions at lionrecoveryfund.org

We are excited to be funding the Wildlife Crime Prevention Project. Lions are targeted by poachers for their skins and other body parts in some African countries, including Zambia. That's why the Lion Recovery Fund is supporting WCPP in the investigation and identification of the trade routes for big cat skins, as well as a new system based on DNA analysis that will allow law enforcement to better tackle this rapidly growing threat to lions. 🔬🦁🔍 Original image by Emil Droge

Ruaha in Tanzania is home to the second largest lion population in Africa. The Ruaha Carnivore Project is receiving funding from the LRF for expansion of their community engagement project on the borders of @ruaha_national_park. RCP’s project is focused on the reduction of human-lion conflict and both retaliatory and ritual killing of lions. In addition, RCP is trialling innovative techniques to incentivize co-existence between people and carnivores. For example, LRF funding will help the Ruaha Carnivore Project develop a grid of camera traps used to measure wildlife abundance, which in turn will be used as the basis for performance payments (payments to communities based on the frequency of sightings of lions and their prey) to the communities to incentivize co-existence and protection of lions. 🦁🕊️Original photo by Steve Mandel

Protecting lions actually benefits African economies in the countries where they roam. Tourism generates at least $34 billion for Africa every year and lions are one of the biggest draws for tourism on the continent. 💛

Surprisingly, half of all lion cubs die before age two. Another reason why we must all work together to protect the landscapes lions call home. 🦁❤️ You can donate today at lionrecoveryfund.org #savelions.

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.
