We've lost half of the worlds lions in the last 25 years. That's why the Lion Recovery Fund was created—to help bring back lions! #SaveLions

A new grant from Lion Recovery Fund is for an innovative carbon finance project by BioCarbon Partners and @LionLandscapes which will create a safe place for lions to roam in a key wildlife corridor in Zambia. This carbon finance project will not only protect the landscape for its carbon absorption benefits, but will offer its carbon credits at a premium due to the additional benefits that this project brings for both lions and their prey such as anti-poaching law enforcement. 🦁🛡️ Original image by Ed Selfe 📸

Lions have disappeared from over 80% of their former range. It’s time to turn up the volume on this quiet crisis and ROAR. Repost to help spread the word, and join us at lionrecoveryfund.org 📸 by Susan McConnell

Treeclimbing is a learned behavior that only certain prides share. Though they may not be the most adept climbers, these huge cats scale trees to stalk prey, catch a cool breeze, or escape biting insects on the ground. 📸 by Steve Mandel

Thrilling reportback from LRF grantee Ruaha Carnivore Project—there were only 3 traditional lion hunts in Ruaha in 2017, compared to 10 in 2016, and 30 lion killings in 2011. Successful tactics include deploying Lion Defenders to protect households, building predator-proof livestock enclosures, and developing local benefit initiatives directly linked to wildlife presence. Three cheers on this milestone RCP! 🏆

Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe is home to a large and growing lion population. However, the buffer areas around Hwange suffer from high levels of snaring for bushmeat which means lions are vulnerable to being killed in snares when they move from the park into neighboring areas. The Lion Recovery Fund is happy to announce a grant for @conservationwildlifefund’s initiative, developed by a consortium of local tourism operators, to create an effective buffer around the park. CWF will be tackling both snaring and human-lion conflict. 📸 by @peterlindseyafrica

Great news! 🎉 We are excited to announce a new grant to Wildlife Conservation Society to reverse the spike in retaliatory killings of lions in the Queen Elizabeth National Park area of Uganda.
Lion Recovery Fund will be supporting WCS in a wide spectrum of conservation efforts there—from rehabilitating a key ranger station near the park boundary to training local communities in livestock husbandry techniques designed to reduce lion attacks. 📸 by @brentstapelkamp

We’ve heard this proverb a thousand times, but what does it mean really? To powerfully determine our destiny for a moment is better than a long life of tolerating the status quo. The lion has long been society’s symbol of power, leadership, and focused determination. Ironically, this is exactly what lions need from us to ensure their survival. There are approximately 1/10th the lions that roamed the Earth only a hundred years ago. The status quo—habitat loss, human-lion conflict, poaching and illegal bushmeat hunting—can not continue if we want lions to exist for future generations.

If invested in sufficiently and managed effectively, Africa’s protected areas could support a 3-4x the current population of lions, according to a scientific paper published by Dr. Peter Lindsey of LRF co-founding partner Wildlife Conservation Network. This potential is what @LionRecovery is focused on transforming into reality in 2018, and beyond! 🌍🦁 Profound gratitude to our generous donors and visionary partner @leonardodicapriofdn for making LRF’s conservation projects for 2018 possible. -The Team at LRF and WCN

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.”-Rachel Carson 🌍💚Contemplating Africa’s landscapes throughout its network of magnificent parks and reserves does indeed give one a renewed sense of inner strength. Not only that, it’s been shown that ethical tourism bolsters both local economies and protection for lions. That’s why in 2018, @LionRecovery is establishing a historic partnership with Africa’s leading safari companies committed to bringing lions back. 📸 by Steve Mandel

Our past by no means dictates our future. 2018 is a fresh start for all of us, including lions. The King of Beasts may have disappeared from 80%+ of its former range, but this year we are helping to shift that. Our grantee @africanparksnetwork will be reintroducing lions to Liwonde National Park in Malawi! Our partner the Greater Limpopo Carnivore Program will be collaborating with Limpopo National Park to reduce lion poaching in Mozambique. The list of recovery, retention and rescue projects across Africa that LRF is supporting in 2018 goes on. Thank you for caring about the fate of these incredible creatures, and for all the actions you will take in 2018 to ensure the future of lions and the wild places where they roam--be it sharing their story on social media, donating to the cause, or going on an ethical African safari. Together, with our partners, allies, and all of you, we can secure a thriving future for lions. Happy New Year friends! 🎉🎉🎉 Photo by Moritz Stragholz 📸 #savelions #2018 #newyearsday #lion #lions #lionrecovery #lionking #Africa #africanbush #wildlife #wildlifephotography #DYK #nationalparks #safari #picoftheday #photooftheday #africansafari #animals #instadaily #animalsofinstagram #conservation #catsofinstagram #instagood #cats #wildcats #bigcats #malawi #mozambique

He is just magnificent! Did you know that we've lost half the world's wild lions in the last 25 years? And we've got less than 24 hours left this year to save them. By donating right now, you can make a lasting difference for lions throughout 2018. The link is in our bio. ❤️🦁 Have a safe and happy New Year, and thank you for everything you've done in 2017 to help lions like this one to thrive!

We are thrilled to support African Park's Network continued work to expand West African lion populations in Pendjari National Park! ・・・ #Repost @africanparksnetwork
Since assuming management of the spectacular Pendjari Biosphere Reserve in May this year, our partnership with the Government of Benin which is providing significant funding has already led to extraordinary measures being taken to protect it. As part of the #RevealingBenin national development programme, the Presidency announced this Monday the authorization of the creation of a special law enforcement brigade to safeguard the park’s wildlife; persisting in the last great savannah wilderness in West Africa, its iconic species are an asset for Benin’s economy, giving it enormous potential as a global tourism destination. African Parks will soon initiate the training of up to 100 rangers for the anti-poaching team, recruiting and selecting people from around the area and working with communities to secure a future of prosperity. #AfricanParks #BéninRévélé #Benin #wildlife #tourism #conservation #Africa #bigcats @lionrecovery ・・・ #savelions #pendjari #lion #lions #lionrecovery #lionking #africanbush #wildlifephotography #DYK #nationalparks #safari #africansafari #animals #westafrica #animalsofinstagram #conservation #catsofinstagram

Today our grantee Wildlife Crime Prevention is launching a public awareness campaign to stop the illegal bushmeat trade in Zambia. Illegal bushmeat snares can be a threat to many animals they were not intended for, like these lions. Find out more about the campaign at thisisnotagame.info 🦁

Good news! A recent study shows that there are are many more lions than expected in Cameroon's Bouba Ndjida National Park, where they have been in steep decline for some time. 🎉🎉🎉 Original image by Susan McConnell 📸
