Lions may be extinct in 2050? What can I do?

Lions may be extinct in 2050? What can I do?

Lions may be extinct in 2050. What can I do? What can we do? 

1. Become informed! Read up as much as possible about canned hunting, captive lion breeding, cub petting, lion walks and the lion bone trade. Knowledge is power. You will find most of the information you need on our website. Lions are threatened all over Africa. Loss of habitat, poisoning, illegal bushmeat trade, poaching, and snaring are their most significant threats in all Eastern African countries. All these factors are responsible that wild Lions may be extinct in 2050. 

2. Grasp the facts! Start lobbying your local MPs, Councillors, Ministers, and Senators. If you live abroad, contact the South African Embassy near you. Great strides were made in the past because one person started to do that very thing. Never think that one voice cannot make a difference.

3. Get hold of media (print, radio, TV). See if they know about the situation.

4. Get active on social media and post articles, mainly writing about your feelings about the subject.

5. Talk to your friends. Get them to talk to others. 

6. Are schools in your area interested in educating their pupils? Contact YOUTH for LIONS and ask if they can organize an educational day or support you with any material. Youth for Lions is a global movement aimed at informing and engaging the world’s youth about the realities of volunteering, cub petting, walking with lions and other animal interaction, and their contribution to canned hunting.

7. Organize a protest outside any hunting conventions. 

8. If you hear of anyone who is going to volunteer at any of the breeding places, explain to them why it is not a good idea. Most people are ignorant or naive and think they support conservation by bottle-feeding cubs and walking lions. Read this heartbreaking story about SAVING SERABIE

How a Volunteer Rescued “Her” Lion From Canned Hunting

9. If you see or hear anything that doesn’t seem right, please report it to us so we can investigate further.
