WHAT I WOULD SAVE

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Conservati­on Choices -

“If I was al­lowed to be to­tally self­ish, I would save LI­ONS be­cause of the sense of affin­ity we have with their ad-hoc so­cial struc­ture, and the fear that they in­spire. But, con­tra­dic­to­rily, rather than save the sa­van­nah – where we feel at home – I would save the RAIN­FOR­EST, for the rea­son that it is not very hu­man-friendly.”

SIMON BARNES Nat­u­ral­ist and au­thor of Ten Mil­lion Aliens

Lion num­bers may have plum­meted by 30 per cent in the past two decades.
