In the wild, lions are in the gravest danger!
Hunters kill them to boost their egos. Poachers kill them to sell their bones as phony medicine to the Asian market. Rural people kill them because they see them as a danger to their livestock and, the final straw, human settlements are taking more and more of their land.
From the last century to now, lion numbers have dropped from 200,000 to 20,000, and more die every day!
