Our photo of the day shows a precious lion cub in Nigeria's Yankari Game Reserve. Sadly, lion sightings like this are rare in Nigeria, as surveys by Panthera, WCS Nigeria and the Nigerian National Park Service for Jan-Aug of 2009 established that Nigeria is home to fewer than 50 lions.

For more information on this lion cub, read the full story in our April 2011 Newsletter
