Lions. There not enough words to describe their incredible power, majestic presence, and their awesome roar (or panic-inducing depending where you are). Now the wild population, like so many of our other great predators, are in danger. Estimates indicate there are as few as 32,000 African lions left in the wild.
We ought to do better by these amazing animals. Did you know that the U.S. imports more than half of all lions killed by trophy hunters? This is appalling to me in this day and age. If you agree, we have the chance to speak up. Help protect African lions from hunters by submitting public comment by Monday, January 28. We must stand for those who cannot do so themselves. Can you imagine a world where the only lions left are in captivity?
