Follow Marnus and his team at Walking for Lions as they strive to protect the species....
Over the past 50 years, there has been a dramatic decrease in the lion population, falling from 200,000 to just 15,000 in Africa. Lions are already extinct in 25 African nations, with only 14 African countries still habituated by this species....
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s trophy bear-hunting proposal is devoid of scientific merit. Eight scientific studies, including one published in 2014, have found no evidence that hunting to reduce the bear population would result in fewer human-bear conflicts, unless such a high number of bears is killed that the populations are no longer viable.

WAT PHA LUANG TA BUA — better known among travelers as “Tiger Temple” — is probably the most controversial temple in Southeast Asia.
You’ve probably seen pictures of people posing next to a majestic tiger, bravely holding up a tiger’s tail and grinning proudly, or perhaps even shoving a baby bottle filled with formula down a tiger cub’s mouth. Obviously great shots for Facebook.
