In the 1960’s, there were over 200,000 lions in Africa. Now the population is down to less than 25,000; a decline close to 90% in just 50 years. LionAid.org dedicated to the conservation of lions, has been successfully working with members of the UK and EU Parliaments to address major issues contributing to the catastrophic lion population decline. While LionAid accepts that loss of habitat and co-existence issues with humans and livestock have been a major factor, they now consider that lion trophy hunting as a significant source of mortality that needs more stringent regulation. LionAid also recognizes that disease issues emanate from domestic animals continues to affect lions. As a component of their overall lion conservation plans, a conference will be held in Nairobi on March 29 and 30, 2012. This conference will enable forward-thinking range states to evaluate considered conservation programs for African lions to better ensure their future survival. Tune in as host, June Stoyer speaks to the founders of LionAid.org, Christine Macsween and to Dr. Pieter Kat.
