The African Lion ( Panthera leo – Wikipedia ) is on the IUCN list of threatened species, status: vulnerable.
Most lions now live in eastern and southern Africa, and their numbers there are rapidly decreasing, with an estimated 30–50% decline over the last two decades. Habitat loss and conflicts with humans are considered the most significant threats to the species. (source: Wikipedia)
