US Fish and Wildlife Service

We used to call them ‘kings of the jungle’ while they roamed fearlessly on the savannah: at times protective, at others fierce — yet, always proud. But, these images of African lions could soon end up becoming a long-lost memory unless we stop their ruthless killing by the multi-million dollar trophy hunting industry.

The lion population has declined by a shocking 90% since the 1950s and scientists are warning that they may be on the verge of extinction. An alarming 60% of trophy hunters in Africa are coming from the US. But, now, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service wants to list the African lion as endangered species and ban trophies that come from countries with no conservation programs from entering the US. Let's make sure that they hear our support during the public comments period.

This is an incredible opportunity to cut back the trophy hunting industry and help the recovery of African lion populations - let's turn the tide now. Sign the petition and share this with everyone you know.
