#Regram #RG @lionrecovery: Lions can benefit people! The tourism industry in Africa is already worth a staggering USD34 billion per year and is set to expand with growing global demand among the world’s public to see species such as lions. Many African countries are currently overly dependent on commodities or agriculture, and nature-based tourism can diversify and grow economies. However, the potential of the tourism industry will ONLY be realised if much greater investment is made in protecting the assets on which it depends. This means more funding for the protection of lions and other wildlife, and for the management of the wilderness areas on which they depend. Perspective from LRF Director, @petelindseyafrica
