Dr. Peter Lindsey, Director of the Lion Recovery Fund, recently contributed an article to the New Big 5, an international initiative to create a new classification of the five most celebrated wildlife species to photograph, not hunt, in hopes of inspiring increased conservation efforts. Lions were inducted as one of the New Big 5 species, and Dr. Lindsey's article discusses the key threats to lions and what we need to do to help them recover.
