The populations has dropped severly in the last 50 years. In 1960 there was over 100,000 lions living Africa and now only less than 36,000 lions are left. Many of the lions have lost thier habitat to humans.also lions are being killed by poachers and trophy hunters. This is horrible and it needs to stop. Not only are lions beautiful creatures, they are a good part the the African ecosystem. If they lions died off there would be a large problem of the population of impala and other animals that are the lions prey.
When I grow up I wish to study the lions that live in Kenya and most of Africa. I am worried that by the time I am able to study the lions there won't be any lions left for me to study. I hope that the beautiful creatures will be there for me and the generations after me to see. Please help me and stop the killing of lions.
