What are the biggest threats to lions?
-Hunting, poisoning and poaching by farmers who see lions as a threat to their livestock
-Population growth resulting in habitat loss
-Growing trade in lion trophies
How can you help them?
You can help protect African Lions by joining the El Paso Zoological Society. The Society supports the Zoo’s conservation fund including a special project in Kenya called the Lion Guardians.
Without lions, the ecosystem in which they live would be greatly affected. Lions are top predators and play a key role in maintaining the balance in the ecosystem.
