Lions in Botswana

A report says that West African lions on verge of extinction. The UK-based conservation group LionAid says as few as 645 lions remain in the wild in western and central Africa. [1]

But why want to keep them alive?

For all the WRONG reasons of course…

We want them alive so as to see them in documentaries from the safety of our couch. We want them alive so that we can gain money from the zoos in which we will keep them. We want them alive so that we can have them as pets (yes!). NOT because we are ecologists. NOT because we love nature.

Let us be true. Let us kill all lions.
