Did you know that there are only around 20,000 lions left in the wild currently, and that their numbers have halved in just the last quarter of a century? As a result of a Kickstarter campaign, the book – Remembering Lions – will be a beautiful coffee table book, full of images donated by many of the world’s top wildlife photographers, and will be published on Monday 14th October 2019. Printing starts 7 July 2019.
Some of the photos (with their photographers credited) are shown below.
