In our first blog I wanted to inscribe something that inspires and also sparks a desire to respond in those out there who feel passionately or otherwise about the topic of mountain lions. They are certainly controversial, and sometimes the questions I am asked at the many lectures I give are quite difficult to answer. The issues in the world of humans versus lions are never easy to resolve.
Oakland Zoo Lion Appreciation Day 2016 Saturday, August 6, 2016, 10:00am to 3:00pm at the Oakland Zoo
Lions are one of the most popular and iconic animals in the world - but the King of the Beasts is in trouble in the wild. It is estimated there are fewer than 30,000 lions left in all of Africa due to habitat loss and human-wildlife conflict, and our own California mountain lions face similar challenges. Learning about and appreciating lions helps, and you can be part of it. Let's celebrate the majestic lion at Oakland Zoo this August, in honor of World Lion Day - come on over and roar for lions with us!
