  • Published 1 year ago

The commonly known African Lion has been listed as “vulnerable” on the IUCN Red List Since 1996. The population of the species declined by more than 40% since the early 1990s.

The Lion (Panthera Leo) is one of the big cats in the genus Panthera and a member of the Felidae family. The species is commonly known as African lion, since most of the members of the family are native to Africa.

Males can exceed 550lbs in weight, making them the second-largest living cat after the tiger. For years, men have been amazed by the lion.

In folk culture and children’s books, the lion is the king of the jungle. But how do lions live? There have been many documentaries on the subject, including how and where they live, how they eat, how they breed, and so on.

This documentary takes a different approach at the lions, focusing more on what makes the lion vulnerable species, and how we can help them. After all, we do not want the lion to become an endangered species, right?
