This year I took part in, and helped organize the Global March For Lions Toronto event. It was a great day with lots of people coming out to bring awareness to the practice of Canned Hunting and the plight of African Lions who are being bred in captivity only to be killed by trophy hunters.
This is a short video from the event day and it tells you why we were out braving the Canadian cold.
To all readers, and especially if you are in the USA, please take time to contact the USFWS to ask them to ban all importation of Lion Trophies into the USA and to list the African Lion as Endangered. Killing is not conservation and allowing hunting of Lions will not save them.
Comments are being received here until January 27, 2015 so please speak up and share widely to help prevent this magnificent species from heading into extinction.
