It’s hard to believe, but the King of the Jungle is in trouble. The population of African lions is falling at an alarming rate, with an estimated 20,000 to 30,000 lions left in all of Africa. Field researchers and conservationists believe the decline can be slowed and eventually reversed through community outreach and education. That’s where you come in.
