Lion Cub photographed by the Panthera-supported Kafue Lion Project in Zambia, May 2012

This photo of lion cub was taken in May 2012 by the Panthera-supported Kafue Lion Project (KLP) in Zambia. The team's monitoring revealed that a local pride has welcomed at least eight new cubs. Zambia is one of only seven countries estimated to have a population of over 1,000 wild lions & is therefore critical in the conservation of Africa's lions.
