African lion

Today, the African lion survives only on 25% of its former range, its numbers are estimated at 23,000 a decrease of 75% in 50 years, already 2 species are extinct, those Cape and Atlas and two highly endangered (Senegal and Katanga)
The African lion is classified as "vulnerable" on the Red List of Threatened Species IUCN, and the challenge of the coming years will be to get to leave enough savannah on a continent that needs more and more land agricultural. Hope like for many other wild animals comes from the sustainable conservation of huge natural areas preserved in national parks
