Why do they need our support?

Lion populations in Africa have experienced rapid decline over the last two decades, only about 23,000 lions remain in the wild today. Habitat loss, loss of prey, increased human populations and human-lion conflict are all contributing factors to declining lion populations.

How is the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo helping?

The Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo is a proud financial supporter of Lion Guardians. The money donated to this conservation organization helps them further their mission of achieving human-lion coexistence through cultural education and the monitoring of lion populations.
