Lion cubs at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo
ZSL Whipsnade Zoo was proud to announce the arrival of four extremely cute lion cubs last week - see exclusive images of them here.
The cubs’ arrival is creating a huge buzz at the zoo, which has not seen the successful birth of a lion litter for 30 years.
Populations of African lions are endangered and in decline in the wild, where they are at risk of being poached and killed. The pride at the zoo act as a flagship for ZSL’s Tanzania Carnivore Centre which works to protect all species of carnivore in the region.
