Lion populations in Africa are thought to have dropped by 90% since 1960. Where previously they ranged across vast swathes of the continent, these days the main populations are restricted to protected areas. Local people are naturally reluctant to share their lands with lions, partly for perceived reasons of personal security, but mainly because they have a tendency to prey on domestic herds. In common with most of Africa's wildlife, survival is critically linked to income generated by tourism and the amount of land that can therefore be set aside for conservation.
