African lions have disappeared from over 80% of their historic range, and their population declined by nearly 50% in just over two decades. Despite this, some exotic game farms in the United States are raising African lions to be sold to slaughterhouses and turned into meat.
Horrifying, but completely legal.
We're working to change this and help lions survive in the wild where
they belong by pressuring the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to protect
lions under the Endangered Species Act. This would prevent the import
and trade in lions or their parts within the United States.
world's largest importer of both commercially traded African lion parts
and lion trophies, the U.S. is driving the market for killing lions. We
can stop that with your help.
Please support our work to
protect African lions under the Endangered Species Act and to help other
similar species come back from the brink with a donation today.
