Information on lion conservation, from a chapter of the book "Lions in Danger," is presented. People can help lions by educating others about the importance of conserving them. They can also help by donating money to conservation groups such as the African Wildlife Foundation. Another way to help lions is to adopt a cub or a pride of lions.
