Lions are disappearing across Africa. In fact, we've lost half of all lions in just 25 years. But together, we can bring them back. Learn more by clicking the link in our bio. Photo: Steve Mandel

A few years ago, @musekeseconservation removed a snare from a female lioness in Zambia's Kafue National Park. Just this past October they confirmed that this same female gave birth to cubs! She is still keeping her cubs in hiding, so the number of cubs is unknown, but we are thrilled to see her recover from her injury and be able to care to for her cubs. Learn more about these on-the-ground efforts at @musekeseconservation.

Today is #InternationalCheetahDay! Did you know that when prey for lions are threatened from poaching and snaring, lions often are forced to compete with smaller predators, like cheetahs, for prey? When we protect lions and their landscapes, we protect so many other species. Learn more about how we can protect lions, and as a result species like cheetahs, at lionrecoveryfund.org.

Remember Naturinda, the lioness found in Uganda's Queen Elizabeth National Park with a horrendous snare cutting through her face? She was emaciated and close to death, but today we are happy to report that she recovered from her injuries! The truth is though, her recovery is not the norm as most snared animals do not survive their injuries. Click the link to the @natgeo article in our bio to see pictures after Naturinda’s treatment and hear LRF Director Peter Lindsey (@petelindseyafrica) talk about the many facets of what makes snaring lethal for lions. A huge thanks to the WCS Uganda and the wildlife authorities for their work removing Naturinda's snare.

Lions in Tanzania's Tarangire/Manyara system are threatened by human-wildlife conflict and the loss of habitat due to the growth of rangelands around protected areas. Our funds to @africanpeoplewildlife are being used to work with local communities to prevent lions from preying on the local's livestock. They are also using Wildlife Warriors to warn livestock farmers when lions enter or come near grazing lands. These efforts help local communities live alongside lions and reduce the number of retaliatory killings of lions by pastoralists.

Early indications suggest that there is incredible potential for lion recovery in SE Angola: LRF provided a grant to Panthera to work with the Angolan authorities to help secure and manage the vast Luengue-Luiana National Park. Preliminary forays in the area have showed evidence of significant remnant wildlife populations, with potential to grow in number rapidly with sufficient protection. Lions are scarce but present. If the habitat and prey populations can be secured, and threats to lions tackled, there is perhaps more scope for lion recovery at this site than anywhere else in Africa. Photos @donjooste

BioCarbon Partners recently sent photo updates of their new community scout trainees that will work in the Lusaka Province in Zambia. These new trainees (which include a few women!) are hired from the local communities and will monitor wildlife and security within this region, which is currently threatened by habitat destruction and bushmeat poaching.
