Help Name the Buffalo Zoo African Lion Cubs

May 13, 2021 - May 20, 2021

The Buffalo Zoo recently welcomed two new lion cubs – one boy and one girl. Now you can help give them a name! The animal care team has narrowed down the choices for both cubs, and each name has a special meaning. The names receiving the highest number of votes will be bestowed upon our ferocious friends. Each vote is $1.00, and you can cast as many votes as you’d like.

By voting for your favorite names for our new lion cubs, you are not only supporting the Buffalo Zoo, but the Association of Zoos & Aquariums Lion SAFE (Saving Animals From Extinction) Program.

Over the last 25 years, lion populations in Africa have been nearly cut in half. AZA organizations are partnering with organizations in Africa to mitigate conflict between farmers and lions, increase monitoring of the lion population’s numbers and distribution, and address habitat loss. By 2050, the SAFE African lion team hopes to reach their goal of doubling the number of lions in the wild. (source,

The Buffalo Zoo is committed to providing exceptional care for our animals and creating a feature where wildlife thrives. We do this through conservation initiatives and inspiring our guests to become champions of wildlife.

Update: Voting has closed. Thank you to all who participated!
