Where Lions Roam is a travel website focused on helping to protect the lion population in Africa and all over the world. They are raising awareness about lions on their website at http://www.wherelionsroam.com/, by providing comprehensive information about lions, where they live, what they eat, and things the average person can do to help protect a dying species.

3rd March, 2015 — Statistics show that more than 80% of the population of lions has been removed off the face of this planet due to poaching, hunting, invasion of lion habitat by humans, etc. While most conservationists are focusing on the plight of the rhino and to a lesser extent the elephant, a holocaust is in progress and soon lions will be on the endangered list.

Izak van Heerden from Where Lions Roam spoke about the incentive of this organization and their work in an official statement “Where Lions Roam was born out of the simple realization that the wonders of nature is disappearing around us without us noticing. Soon the only place our children will be able to see the animals we take for granted today will be in historic journals.” He further added “There are simple and effective things we can do to help causes that protect these animals, such as going on safari to places where lions are protected (thereby helping the local conservation efforts), or to make donations to the right organizations. Something as simple as speaking out on social media will already be a step in the right direction.”

The creators of Where Lions Roam believe that encouraging people to go and see lions in their natural habitat will promote tourism and lead to more measures taken to protect the lions in nature. On 5 February 2015, Where Lions Roam adopted a rescued lion cub named Ena. Ena was removed from a circus where she was kept in a small wooden crate for most of her life. With help of several individuals and organizations, Ena now enjoys a better life at the Drakenstein Lion Park in the Western Cape province of South Africa.

Where Lions Roam is continually looking for new ways to support the conservation of lions, and would like to challenge you to also do something today to help in the effort.
