The West African Lion
The West African Lion is critically endangered with just 400 animals left in the wild and 250 mature adults. This is less than 10% of the population that existed in 2013! Why, because their environment is being lost and eroded and the lions are wondering into areas where they are hunted and killed by humans. Adult male lions weigh up to 400 pounds and eat a whopping 100 pounds of meat in one meal! They hunt mostly at night and love storms as the noise means their prey can't hear them. Lion's mains grow unto 8 inches in length, like human hair are used to attract mates, but also protect them when they are fighting other males for mates!
Lion populations have decreased throughout Africa and Africa is the only place on earth where they can be found with one exception in India. There are around 20,000 lions of all types left - compare that with over 400,000 elephants of all types.
Our West African Lion bracelet seeks to capture the natural hews and colors of this remarkable 'King or Queen of the Jungle' and as the jungle disappears, so do they.
We plant a tree for everyone who joins the band. Our COP26 bands will being coming out at the beginning of September - a big month in the battle against global warming!
