"...A report published at the end of 2012 estimated the number of lions in Africa to be as low as 32,000. That may not sound too alarming until put into context. Only 40 years ago, Africa was home to 200,000 lions. If this rate of decline is allowed to continue we could be facing an Africa without any wild lions within 40 years. We must not make the same mistakes that have been made with other species. We can, and must, act now while there is still time.
