Lions are disappearing
African lions are fast disappearing as they face mounting pressure to survive. Habitat loss, persecution and the worst threat of all, hunted down and shot by cowardly people with enough money to buy a pass into Africa for the purpose of bringing down a trophy. Symbols of strength dominance and power these majestic and beautiful big cats are symbols of the African continent that must be protected at all costs. Fortunately there are people who care enough to get involved in conservation efforts to save them from extinction but is it enough ? Governments have to get behind the effort to save them too otherwise it's a losing battle. Sadly corruption in a lot of Africa's counties contribute to the relentless exploitation of a lot of the wildlife including lions. It seems so shocking that those who allow this to happen are so short sighted and cannot see they are selling off what can never be replaced once it's gone. That the wildlife itself generates millions of tourist dollars for the country that will stop when there is nothing left to see.
