The population of lions on the Earth have dwindled from 450,000 in the 1950s to around 20,000 today. The less-than-human among humans are wiping them off the face of the planet. It is a horrible trend not limited to lions.
An important Take Part article includes an interview with filmmaker and conservationist Dereck Joubert, who believes it’s not too late to save this great species. But if too little is done, lions could be gone within two decades.
I still find it hard to believe that greedy and uncaring people are having this kind of impact on the Earth and its wildlife. But I still believe that good people out-pace the bad. We just need to pull in more from those who, to date, have been apathetic or unaware of what’s going on.
And we need to make sure we’re raising the next generation of compassionate people.
