Support Our Petition to List the African Lion as Endangered

    1. Petition by

      The Humane Society of The United States

The African lion is headed for extinction. Its wild population has dwindled by almost fifty percent in only the last three decades and latest studies show that as few as 23,000 remain today. Action must be taken now to save this iconic species, so we collaborated with other organizations and submitted a petition to list the African lion as endangered under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

TAKE ACTION
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service just issued a preliminary finding that an endangered listing may be warranted, and the agency has initiated a status review for African lions. During the status review, the agency will consider public comments -- please fill out and submit the form letter below to add your name in support of this effort. We'll deliver the letter to Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, towards the end of the public comment period.
