Happy World Lion Day! : "Today is World Lion Day! The death of Cecil the lion has recently captured attention worldwide, and has served as a timely reminder of the fragility of wild lion populations. While lions once roamed several continents, these animals are now restricted to small populations in a handful of African countries and to the Gir Forest National Park in India. According to the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) the global lion population has declined by about 42% over the past 21 years. Threats to lions include retaliatory or indiscriminate killing, prey base depletion, habitat loss, poaching and poorly regulated sports hunting. ‪#‎WorldLionDay‬
