Help Name the Buffalo Zoo African Lion Cubs
May 13 - May 20
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, aza.org)
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.
