There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Southeast Africa or Southeastern Africa is a region that is intermediate between Eastern Africa (which partially includes Northeast Africa) and Southern Africa (which includes what was known as Southwest Africa). It comprises the countries Botswana, Burundi, Eswatini (Swaziland), Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe, in the mainland, with the island-nation of Madagascar also included. All lions in this region are of the Southern subspecies (Panthera leo melanochaita), with the possible exception of those in the northern parts of Uganda and Kenya in East Africa, which are apparently where the range of the Southern subspecies overlaps with that of the Northern subspecies (Panthera leo leo), see this thread for more details.

Beverly Joubert: " A lioness hauls her precious cargo across a Kenyan grassland. For lion cubs, the odds of surviving to adulthood are uncertain at best – just one in eight males are likely to make it. Attacks from other predators, abandonment by their mothers, or vicious takeovers by rival males could all land the cubs in trouble. But it’s not just natural dangers that lions must endure, human-caused threats are putting the species under increasing pressure as well. It is these risks that we can – and should – control. ⁣


We’ll be taking you to the plains of Kenya this #EarthDay for the premiere of BORN WILD: THE NEXT GENERATION coming to @natgeochannel on April 22 8/7c. Tune in!⁣ "
