Namibia: An Exhibition to Save Desert Lions

By Clarice Theys, 11 November 2013

As majestic and intimidating as they may seem, Namibian lions have been living a precarious life of survival, with their numbers rapidly dwindling over the past three decades. Conservation for these endangered species was dealt a heavier blow with the death of XPL-77 who was hunted down at the end of September 2013.

XPL-77 was residing in the Kunene Region, which supports a unique population of desert-adapted lions. These lions are however vulnerable. Between 2000 and 2010, local people have killed 15 male lions in protection of their livestock and 11 male lions were shot for trophy hunting.

The long-term viability of the desert lion population has been compromised by the excessive killing of adult and sub-adult males.
