SHORT FILM | “Last Stand of the African Lion”
A call to action video on the plight of the rapidly disappearing lion population in Africa. All supporters of the film will be acknowledged in the film’s credits. New evidence suggests that the lions that remain in West Africa are genetically unique compared to others on the continent. These last few West African lions must be protected, and the United States is in a unique position to help. Listing the animals as endangered would in general make the import of lions and lion parts illegal, and create momentum for international conservation efforts. Urge the United States to declare West African lions endangered, before it is too late.
