What are the regions where the lions remain?

How is sport hunting a threat to the lions?

What causes the lions' habitat loss?

Cons:-Lions are being hunted faster than they can reproduce: 4791 trophies were exported 2002-2009, from a population of 20,000-92% of the population decrease in Tananzia was due to sport hunting

Save the African Lions!by Emily

Tan color=where the lions used to liveMaroon color=where the lions live now

Species: Panthera leoGenus: Pardofelis (marbled cat)

-Humans destroy the lions' habitat for agriculture-When an agricultural region is near a lion habitat, hungry lions wander through farms and kill livestock-Humans kill lions in retaliation for killing livestock

-There are only 20 remaining countries with the lions-The lions are almost completely gone from West Africa-70% of the remaining lions live in Southern/Eastern African regions

-The ICUN lists African lions as "vulnerable to extinction"-The ESA has created a new permit program, so hunting is only allowed in scientifically proven programs-Five conservation groups created a petition in 2011 to protect lions fro sport hunting
