Lions in the wild

Vulnerable to extinction, sadly over the past 21 years the lion population in the wild is believed to have been reduced by 43% – that’s the equivalent of three generations. It is now estimated that there may be as few as 20,000 Lions remaining in the wild.

Safeguarding this species from extinction

At Monarto Zoo, we are home to one of Australia’s largest lion prides and are part of the international breeding program safeguarding this species from extinction. Any cubs born at Monarto Zoo will play significant role not only in our breeding program to bolster the insurance population for this vulnerable species, but also as ambassadors for their species, acting as a powerful educational tool to shed light on the plight of their wild cousins.

How your visit helps

Lions 360 will help us continue our work as a conservation charity raising awareness for this amazing species. We’re on a mission to save lions from extinction and that’s why we support 36 rangers to patrol the Sera Conservancy in Kenya to protect Lions and other African species. We are also raising valuable funds to safeguard lions in their native Zambia through our partnership with Painted Dog Conservation Inc supporting the Zambian Carnivore Program.

By taking the walk of the brave and entering the lions’ den, you are helping us save lions from extinction in the wild.
