Help Us Protect the Pride

Audubon welcomed the cubs as part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums' Species Survival Plan Breeding guidelines. In addition to creating a population safety net of lions in human care, we're also teamed up with Disney to Protect the Pride by supporting the Wildlife Conservation Network's Lion Recovery Fund to help African wildlife, habitats, and communities. So, when you come see the newest additions to our pride here in New Orleans, you can take pride in knowing that you're helping these majestic animals across the globe.

Lions are critically endangered with a total population of only 20,000.

We're trying to change that.
