A lion in Gabon (after all these years)

Thought I’d share some exciting news on the wildlife front – a lion has been spotted for the first time in nearly 20 years in Gabon. Researchers earlier this year picked up on a male through the use of camera traps in Bateke National Park.  Although this is just one male, and it is unclear if any females are close enough for mating, this news is exciting about the potential for Africa’s biggest cat to once again roam the grasslands of eastern Gabon.
