twenty four lions

On August 5, 2018, the largest movement of wild lions across an international boundary in history occurred as Twenty Four Lions were re-introduced to a 2.5 million-acre habitat in the Zambeze Delta of Mozambique. The environment, once decimated by civil war and poaching, has benefited from 24 years of dedication to sound conservation practices. However, in spite of these efforts, the lion population has struggled to recover. Lions have become extinct in 26 African countries. Twenty Four Lions is determined to make sure that Mozambique doesn’t join that list.
