ARTICLE: Lions may disappear without urgent funding for conservation

If, like me, you’ve been avidly watching BBC One’s new nature series, Dynasties, you’ll probably be looking forward to the latest episode on lions, due to air this Sunday. In it, the protagonists, Charm and Sienna, will show us how hard it is to be a successful lioness in a land filled with enemies.

Under constant threat of marauding hyenas and cub-killing male lions, the two mothers have to fight for their lives to ensure their offspring have a chance of making it to adulthood. But the episode will also show us that the biggest enemy of lions isn’t other wild predators – it’s humans.
