Monday at 8 AM Pacific

September 18th 2017:Encore: For The Love of Lions with Dr. Pieter Kat

In a world inundated with captive bred African lions, why are we losing wild lions in Africa? With successful foreign bans against import of lion trophy and products, airline embargos, and bans of lions in circuses and performing entities - combined with the global push for USFW to list African Lions as endangered under the ESA, will we turn the tide for lions? Or will the illegal trade and pressure from moneyed private interests in S. Africa, the NRA, SCI and DSC to obfuscate collective data on real wild lion numbers and their decline? The African Lion's genetic diversity is collapsing; isola

Pieter Kat

Pieter Kat has been involved in a diverse selection of scientific fields for the past 25 years. With degrees in marine biology, genetics, ecology, and evolution from universities in the USA, he elected to travel widely to apply this knowledge. He has spent 10 years in Kenya establishing biological research programs at the National Museums including documentation of biodiversity, genetic diversity, research on predators, and research on a variety of diseases. He has also spent time in the United States working at the University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, and the Centers for Disease Control. Initially LionAid.org was established in 2004 exclusively for lion research

Or will the illegal trade and pressure from moneyed private interests in S. Africa, the NRA, SCI and DSC to obfuscate collective data on real wild lion numbers and their decline? The African Lion's genetic diversity is collapsing; isolated populations reaching the tipping point toward extinction. The immensity of this catastrophe is simply unacceptable. To fail to use all the science, data and tools that we have at our fingertips to work out a global plan to protect African lions in Africa, would deal a disastrous blow in a long list of failures to keep natural populations of large predators alive in a human-centric world.
