N°15 – The Lion
The lion, the king of animals in the collective imagination, embodies majesty and power. Although not residing in Europe, lions captivate the peoples through zoos and reserves. These institutions offer a unique opportunity to observe these feline predators up close and learn about their behavior, ecology, and role in the ecosystem.
As people contemplate these powerful creatures, they are confronted with the importance of global biodiversity conservation. Lions, like many other species, face increasing threats due to habitat loss, poaching, and other human pressures. Their presence in zoos and reserves underscores the urgency of protecting wildlife and vulnerable ecosystems for future generations.
