Wild lion population dwindling as 90% disappear from historical habitat.
The majestic lions of Kenya's national parks are a species living on the edge.
The edge of diminishing ecosystems, locked in a conflict with humans, whilst also threatened by wildfires and climate change.
Humans and lions are engaged in a battle for resources.
The killing of 10 lions in one week in May this year at Kenya's Amboseli National Park once again highlighted an increase in human-wildlife conflict.
In some areas of Kenya, lion populations overlap with human settlements and livestock grazing areas leading to negative interaction and conflicts that often result in economic losses, threats to human life and conservation challenges.

      The decline in Kenya's wild lion population and the increasing human-wildlife conflict is a sobering reflection of the complex challenges faced by both humans and wildlife in the wake of climate change and dwindling ecosystems. It's disheartening to witness the majestic lions, once a symbol of strength and wilderness, pushed to the edge. Climate change's impact on habitats and the livelihoods of both humans and wildlife highlights the interconnectedness of these issues. It underscores the importance of a holistic approach that combines habitat conservation, sustainable coexistence strategies, and climate action to ensure the survival of Kenya's magnificent lions and the protection of our planet's biodiversity. 🦁🌍🌿 #ClimateChange #WildlifeConservation #HumanWildlifeConflict

        Poaching should be completely illegal and guilty victims charged harshly.

          We should no sit and watch lions populations falling due to human-wildlife conflict, habitat loss and more.

            The Lion could be extinct if the current habitat loss and poaching continues.

              This is a sad occurrence and I expect the government of Kenya through the Kenya Wildlife Service to take action to save our lions
