Oakland Zoo Lion Appreciation Day 2016

Saturday, August 6, 2016, 10:00am to 3:00pm at the Oakland Zoo

Lions are one of the most popular and iconic animals in the world - but the King of the Beasts is in trouble in the wild. It is estimated there are fewer than 30,000 lions left in all of Africa due to habitat loss and human-wildlife conflict, and our own California mountain lions face similar challenges. Learning about and appreciating lions helps, and you can be part of it. Let's celebrate the majestic lion at Oakland Zoo this August, in honor of World Lion Day - come on over and roar for lions with us!
