Imagine a world without lions
April 15, 2014

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 
-Disease 

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. 

Thank you for taking action!
