Lion Conservation and Sustainable Use

Namibia has a population of about 800 lions, similar to the period 1965 to 1980. Over the past 25 years, a fluctuating population in the Kunene Region in the northwest has increased from 20-30 animals to about 140-160. It is the only really significant lion population outside of protected areas in Namibia. The rest are all contained within national parks, except for small populations in some private wildlife areas.
