Tanzania Has Largest Number of Lions in Africa - Report

A study involving Oxford scientists titled State of the Lion: Fragility of a Flagship Species shows that lion populations in much of Africa are in rapid decline and are projected to decline a further 50% in the next two decades without a major conservation effort. Thanks to an extensive network of protected areas of national parks, game reserves which form at least 300,000 square kilometres, there are estimated to be between 14,000 and 15,000 lions in the country today.
