Why our latest scientific paper with World Animal Protection should concern you:

  • The paper highlights that there are major welfare concerns linked to captive lions in South Africa, but no national norms and standards in place to protect them.
  • Zoonosis (diseases that can jump from animals to humans) is a very real threat.
  • Not a single study has been conducted on the welfare of lions on commercial facilities in South Africa or even globally.

These are a few of the many reasons why we need to #CancelCaptivity.
