Lots of lion cubs!

There are now close to 40 lion cubs throughout the area that we monitor.  That means lots of busy lioness moms.  Cub mortality can be high, however.  ~50% of cubs die due to natural selection and many more die as a result of illegal human activity.  We are working hard to sensitive and educate the communities to the presence of the lions, so that we can reduce the number of cubs, and adults, who die as a result of poisoning.
