Glen Garriff Conservation

is about the preservation and protection of the lion species that reside on our land. The first lions were introduced to Glen Garriff in 2002 which is 100 years after the last two wild lions were hunted down on Platberg in 1902. Glen Garriff Conservation is committed to the sustainability of the African lion gene pool and to the enhancement of the study, learning and understanding of the species. Statistics show that our natural lion wild population is severely under threat of survival, In 1960 lion numbers in sub-Saharan Africa were estimated at 600 000 and today numbers show there could be as few as 20 000 left in the wild.
