Make an origami lion!

Although lions are very fierce and have no natural predators, according to the World Wildlife Fund, their populations have declined by 40% in the last three generations!

This decline is partly due to a reduction in their natural habitat (which means that areas, where they live are being changed or destroyed). It is also because human beings still hunt lions. With only around 20,000 in the wild, African Lions are officially classified as ‘vulnerable’.

This had let to lots of charities focusing on conserving and boosting numbers of Lions in the wild.

To celebrate this beautiful big cat your students can follow these step-by-step instructions to make their own lion corner bookmark from origami. They can then use it when they read more about wildlife and conservation!
