Good new from Liuwa Plain NP, Zambia

13 posts in this topic

African Parks announced the birth of at least 2 lion cubs in Liuwa Plain NP. Many of you might know the story of Lady Liuwa, the last remaining lioness in Liuwa Plain NP in Zambia, and African Parks' efforts, with some struggles to restore the lion population. A follow up documentary from 'The Last Lioness' will be screened later this year.

 

 

Two lion cubs have been sighted in Liuwa Plain National Park in Zambia, significantly marking the first birth of lion cubs in the park for well over 10 years. They were born three to four weeks ago to the protégé of the park’s famous lioness known as Lady Liuwa.

@@egilio oh fantastic news!

 

"Lady Luiwa, the park’s solitary lioness for more than nine years after poaching and illegal trophy hunting wiped out the species, and who herself is past her cub-bearing days, has been seen interacting playfully " isn't it just amazing how maternal instincts kick in even when she was all alone for 9 years and had no model to learn from? just amazing.

I saw photos posted on the ZCP Facebook page of two cubs with their mother and with Lady Liuwa! They look beautiful! Are there still three, or only two now @@egilio ?
