World Lion Day - August 10
Thu Aug 10th

World Lion Day

Today, we invite you to visit one of the world's most majestic animals. It's World Lion Day! Lion lovers around the world celebrate this day each year on August 10 to bring attention to the lion population's declining population. In addition, we recommend finding out how to support lion habitat conservation.

The lion species, also known as Panthera leo, is one of the world's most invasive animals. The lion can range from a light buff color to a deep reddish brown shade, with a ranging from 300 to 550 pounds. The rare white lion is also found in the wild, and it is surprising. The lion is also muscular and has a booming, deafening roar, and is easily identifiable by its thick mane. They are slowly disappearing, as majestic lions may seem.

Lions roamed freely across Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East as far back as three million years ago. Today, loins are living in their natural habitat in only two countries, Africa and Asia. In addition,, some lions are bread in captivity.

According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature's (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species, Lions are listed as a vulnerable species. Although they are not listed as an endangered species, they do still face challenges that threaten their survival.

On earth, there are about 30,000 to 100,000 lions. Lion populations have decreased by almost half in the last two decades. The declining lion population is primarily due to trophy hunting and a lack of natural habitat.

Volunteering at a local zoo that houses lions is a great way to learn more about the care that is required to protect lions. Volunteering or a donation to a conservation charity is another way to show your appreciation for the good work that charities do. Whatever you do, don't forget to post your day's celebration on social media using the hashtag #WorldLionDay.

In 2013, co-founders Dereck and Beverly Joubert of Big Cat Initiative and National Geographic formed a joint venture to celebrate World Lion Day. The National Geographic Big Cats Initiative, also known as the National Geographic Big Cat Initiative, aims to safeguard these wild cats in their natural habitat. In addition, the initiative also works on education with communities that live near wild cats.
