Claws Out

IAPWA > Support Programmes > Claws Out

The Claws Out campaign aims to end the exploitation of captive lions in South Africa.

Across Africa, wild lion numbers are plummeting and there is a clear correlation with the growth of the captive industry. The legalisation of the lion bone trade is creating an issue of supply and demand – advertising the King of the Jungle as a commodity and this must be stopped. Volunteers and tourists are unaware of the role they are playing in both the lion bone trade and the canned hunting industry, and the Claws Out Campaign is fighting to put an end to this, before it is too late.
We are incredibly proud to have supported the Claws Out campaign. You can find out more about their impactful work and ways you can get involved here.
