Tell the Senate to Help Save Lions and Other Rare Animals

    1. Sponsored by

      Defenders of Wildlife

Africa's lions are facing habitat loss, poaching, poisoning and other threats. There are only an estimated 20,000 lions left in the wild -- an alarming decline from the estimated 450,000 that existed in the 1940s. Without increased conservation efforts extinction could come for the King of Beasts as soon as 2020.

The Great Cats and Rare Canids Act -- already passed in the House -- would authorize critical funds for vital efforts to protect lions and rare animals like snow leopards, Ethiopian wolves, jaguars and other rare wildlife struggling to survive.

Urge your senators to help save lions and other struggling animals and support the Great Cats and Rare Canids Act.
