We are doing all we can but if the African governments themselves don't give a damn & profit from the slaughter.... i don't know!

As AnIMae stated we are doing all we can as individuals.we can do no more . To their shame the African nations appear to do nothing.They're more concerned with the big bucks of tourists and trophy hunters.

Sadly noted thanks Cal!!! Until there is a bounty on poachers, hunters and trapper's heads they will keep sliding into obscurity!!! I want a future with lions in it so I hope we find that answer soon...

E' allarmante che non si riesca a debellare la piaga del bracconaggio, gli stati dell'Africa dovrebbero fare di più, se vogliamo continuare a vedere questi maestosi animali. Grazie per l'articolo Cal.

African nations need to take responsibility, as do the more developed nations.
