#SaveSimba World Lion Day on monday 10. August, for Africans Lions. For us to admire and respect ... not hunt for fun.

#WorldLionDay is a annual campaign to raise much needed conservation awareness for the vulnerable African lion as well as the endangered Asiatic lion. 

Please support World Lion Day to help raise awareness of one of our most iconic species by visiting page at World Lion Day https://worldlionday.com 

This picture is for me a special moment from my work few weeks old #lions #cubs in Kenya's #MasaiMara.
Every day I could watch the lion family and photograph (with special authorisation from KWS Kenya).
After three weeks, a trust was given the lion mother. The lions babies come up to two meters to my car.
A treat to see in a world of rapidly declining lion populations and increasing human-wildlife conflict. It's hard to believe we may have lost between 70-85% of Africa's lions in the last 50 years.
In the 1900's there were at least 500.000 lions in Africa!
1960: 200.000 lions 
1980: 76.000 lions 
2012: 23.000 lions 
2014: 17.000 lions 
2015: 15.000 lions

The lion is an important part of mankind's culture. The lion's existence is interwoven into the very fabric of African folklore and daily life and the iconic images of a lion stalking the savannah, the rasping echo of its roar and the bloodcurdling chill of the animal in full flight are sights and sounds that are, in every sense of the word, irreplaceable.

In respect to these animals, all close up pictures are taken from a distance with extreme long lenses (the super telephoto lens from #Nikon AF-S #NIKKOR #800mm 1:5,6E FL ED VR) and #Nikon #D810. Thanks #Nikon for the best camera and lenses for my conservation work.

The wild lion population within the next 10 to 15 years unless something dramatic is done about the situation. These figures represent a 95% decline in these predator populations.

In fact there are more captive lions in #SouthAfrica than wild ones. This method of “canned hunting” is completely legal in South Africa. Canned hunting is to be stopped!!!

»Great Migration« ‪Masai Mara‬.
The river in the Mara is the only stream that lasts throughout the year and the most important water reservoir of the ecosystem. Especially the survival of the largest hoof animal population in the Serengeti, the gnus, depends on it. Summer after summer, the gnus, as well as other antelopes, gazelles and zebras wander out of the Serengeti north to the wet Massai Mara in Kenya. It is the animals’ pivotal food reservoir during the three-months dry period in Tanzania. Through this so called »Great Migration«, the animals tap into all nutrition resources that occur as a result of the seasonal rains inside their habitat over the course of a year. The »Great Migration« is a survival strategy and secures food for the large hoof animal populations in the savanna. To interrupt the animals’ routes to their food through heavily frequented traffic ways, cultural land seizure or other economic facilitation means to thwart their survival method and would entail the collapse of the ecosystem. 

ONLY 3 PLACES LEFT on my Photo Safaris in the ‪Masai Mara‬ from 14. bis 21. November 2015. If you're interested, go to http://www.serengeti-wildlife.com/safari-fotoworkshop for more info, workshop program availability, and prices and services.
