Did you know…? There are less than 20,000 African lions left in the wild.
At Loro Parque, we represent the majesty of the African continent with three specimens of the African katanga lion (Panthera leo bleyenberghi). In their area, Simba, Malika and Sarabi – all from European zoos – spend their time playing and exploring and enjoy every day the enrichments we prepare to keep them physically and psychologically active.
Over the last 100 years, African lion numbers have dwindled from 200,000 to around 20,000 and their habitat has been reduced to less than a quarter of its original range, having completely disappeared from 26 countries and being present only in 5% of what was its historical range. And this, once again, is a clear consequence of population growth: human beings are occupying more and more space, settling and modifying hunting areas and, for this reason, both lions and other wild animals have lost space .
