World Lion Day comes on August 10 of every year. World Lion Day aims to raise awareness of the majestic hunter, simply known as the king of the jungle. The Lions are one of the big cats in the Panthera genus and a member of the Felidae family. Lions in the wild exhibit very similar behaviour, especially when smaller females or younger animals join up with the more dominant lions in the pride. Lions are the second-largest living cat after the tiger. Wild Lions currently exist in India and Sub-Saharan Africa. Lion Day aims to raise a wareness of the majestic hunter, the ultimate feline, the king of the jungle, the big fluffy kitty of the Serengeti Hmm, we should have left it at ‘king of the jungle’. August 10 is designated as World Lion Day and it is a relatively new event designed to celebrate Lions globally.Basically, it’s all about lions, but you’ve probably got that from the name. “The real power of the Buddha was that he had so much love. He saw people trapped in their notions of small separate self, feeling guilty or proud of that self, and he offered revolutionary teachings that resounded like a lion’s roar, like a great rising tide, helping people to wake up and break free from the prison of ignorance.” The World Lion Day was created by Big Cat Rescue, the world’s largest accredited sanctuary dedicated to big cats. They choose August 10, because it is a perfect day for people to come together from across the world to give tribute to the mighty lion in as several ways as possible. Even though a fun and exciting occasion for all of us, its foundations are based on a grave matter: the number of lions have dramatically declined to the point where the species wants to be placed on the list of endangered, just like its larger cousin the tiger. Hence World Lion Day is a perfect day to raise awareness about the endangering of Lion animals.

As community and conservation manager at The Safari Collection,People are talking about lions and the importance of lion conservation but realise that many people around the world are probably unaware that the global lion population is in worrying decline. A hundred years ago we thought there were over a million lions. Today it is estimated that there are between 20,000 or 35,000 lions on this planet and fewer than 2,000 lions left in the wild in Kenya. This is such a sad fact. As most of the visitors that come to Kenya come to see the big cats (especially the lion) so it is important for all of us that work in tourism in Kenya that we trying our best to protect these creatures from extinction. At The Safari Collection, we focus most of our community and conservation efforts on big cat conservation and have carefully chosen projects that support this. Founded in 2007 by Shivani Bhalla, Ewaso Lions is a grass roots project focusing on lion preservation through community awareness programs and conservation education. Their solutions are founded on traditional cultural practice and embrace local knowledge. Weekly they are delivered to the Conservator Center, where abused and neglected carnivores are rescued.There is urgent need to raise awareness of the plight of these magnificent creatures and to urge people to help in what ever way they can. The safari collection hsa established a comprehensive program of Community and Conservation Projects in the areas around their properties.

World Lion Day is celebrated in London zoo in style, boxing and biting colorful balls stuffed with the big-cat equivalent of catnip. The pride showed off their play skills ahead of World Lion Day on Friday, battering the balls painted with vibrant colors inspired by the Indian State of Gujarat, home to the Asiatic lions. The Zoological Society of London, which runs the zoo, is working on conservation efforts for the endangered Asiatic lions, to bolster numbers. There are only 600 left in the wild. The balls encourage lions "to use their incredible sense of smell to track it through their territory before using their sharp claws to tear into it - acting as a natural manicure for our lionesses." Take pride in your ROAR and let it be heard in honor of World Lion Day. Visit the Kalahari Kingdom to see lion brothers, Dinari and Kamaia and Unleash you inner big cat with lion-themed crafts and activities and learn more about these majestic animals and why conservation efforts on their behalf are so important. Zoo New England participates in the African lion Species Survival Plan. By sharing research and knowledge, participating institutions work together to establish guidelines that best ensure the health of captive populations, and with success, the survival of otherwise extinct species.
Guarding our temples, adorning our flags, decorating our coins and capturing our hearts, the lion is beyond doubt the world’s most iconic species. On almost every continent, and in thousands of cultures, the lion can be found demonstrating man’s fascination with this magnificent beast. Despite the lions’ symbolic importance throughout the ages, today they are suffering from a silent extinction across Africa and India. Knowledge of the King of Beasts’ plight is little known. World Lion Day is the first global campaign to celebrate the importance of the lion worldwide. Since the dawn of man the lion has played an integral role in our lives: symbolically, religiously, culturally, economically and biologically. To lose the lion from our world would be to lose part of our global heritage.There is a great need to create much needed conservation awareness and help us save the King of Beasts and his kingdom.
