Many carnivores are ambush predators. Being seen by their prey can lead to them abandoning the hunt.
Male lions are responsible for the movement of genes between prides. New research confirmed that the genes are traveling long distances – even though no one has been spotting the lions on the journey.
South Africa has the biggest captive big cat industry in the world and it is largely unregulated.
Lions don’t generally have armies of hyenas, but not every aspect of The Lion King is inaccurate.
New report reveals big cats are kept in awful conditions. But the link to poaching in the wild is not clear cut.
The team found evidence of about 50 lions that had been injured or killed by porcupines since the 17th century.
While the international conservation community unites against the captive breeding of big cats in South Africa, the government stalls.
Few people could argue that hunting wildlife for trophies is moral, but conservationists have bigger fish to fry to reverse biodiversity loss
The life-or-death drama of the lion pride will captivate viewers, but the show may not go on without funding to conserve these species.
A billion dollars a year would secure Africa’s lions and its landscapes as well as millions of people living nearby.
Conflict between people and animals has been on the increase in Tsavo, Kenya.
