Lion Aware is the sister-project of Elephant Aware. Together, both projects seek to secure and conserve Elephants, Lions and all wildlife in the area where we work.
There are less than 20,000 lions remaining in the wild today. While this may sound like a significant number, consider that as much as 43% of the world’s lion population has been lost over the past two decades. The main threats to lions today are habitat loss, poaching and conflict with humans.
Despite the name, Lion Aware endeavors to protect all endangered carnivores in our area of operation, including Cheetah as they are also severely threatened by habitat loss, human-wildlife conflict and poaching.
