Since 2009, National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative has funded more than 70 of the most innovative conservationists and their work to identify, test, and scale on-the-ground solutions to help save big cats in the wild.
Saving lions starts with people—both our Big Cat Initiative grantees and with you. This #WorldLionDay, you can be part of the solution to save lions by donating to National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative. Together we can ensure lions and other big cat species can survive and thrive. donate.ngs.org/bigcats
