Lions - A Species Under Threat
Lions are not listed currently as endangered, but their numbers are falling dramatically… Viable and enforced conservation plans are needed in order to protect this amazing species from extinction in the wild.
GLOBAL MARCH FOR LIONS! - MARCH 15TH, 2014.
This is a global event (15 countries and 44 cities with 191 organizers of lion marches) to raise awareness about:
Cub handling, posing with cubs for photos, petting cubs and why that is always abuse.
Walking with lions (walking lions on leashes and letting people walk out into groups of sub adult lions, so the lions get used to people walking up within shooting distance)
Canned hunting (where lions are shot for a fee in cages)
Lion meat issues (all of these are connected)
We are offering a family day “march” through Big Cat Rescue to meet our lions and other wild cats for $5 to people who will take action to save lions by paw-sing at the end to be taped asking their lawmakers to “march the Big Cat & Public Safety Protection Act through Congress.” For more information about this bill go to: https://www.votervoice.net/BCR/Campaigns/30111/Respond
This event is to help people understand the link between paying to play with a cub in this country and lions being slaughtered for their fur, bones and meat, here and in the wild.
