Losing half of a species in 25 years—particularly one as important to Africa and the world as the lion—demands action by all.

It demands coordinated action and the best efforts from the smallest grassroots organizations to the largest multinational conservation non-profits. 

It demands collaboration amongst the donor community to invest more, and to be more coordinated. 

It demands the public and political will within African lion range countries as well as in western countries who can invest to help restore the King of the Beasts.

Such collaboration is a hallmark of the Lion Recovery Fund. The LRF will work generously and selflessly to build greater coordination and collaboration for lion recovery.  

The following organizations are collaborators in lion recovery—as implementers of projects, as scientific advisors to the Fund, or as thought leaders that drive the direction of the investments.
