David Macdonald reports on UNESCO support for lion conservation:

September 12, 2016

WildCRU is deeply honoured to have received encouragement from Edmond Moukala, the distinguished Chief of the Africa Section of UNESCO, at the opening of the Cecil Summit. The message offers UNESCO’s warm support for the initiative, hosted in Oxford by WildCRU and Panthera, and makes clear the very high importance that UNESCO attaches to lion conservation and biodiversity more broadly.
