Lions symbolize strength, courage, power, royalty, protection, pride, authority, majesty and wisdom. And because lionesses are a pride's primary hunters, lions are also symbols of female power, ferocity and family.
These creatures are both fearless and confident, making them symbols of royalty and courage. Many different cultures throughout the world were using lion’s head to decorate temples, palaces, armors as they believed they are royalty or even god.
Sadly, the population of lions is rapidly decreasing; in just two decades, the lion population has decreased by a shocking -43%,with a mere 23,000 lions left in the wild today making them a critically endangered animal. The lion population is dwindling and could become extinct by 2050. Loss of habitat, Illegal wildlife trade, Poor regulation of legal trade, Disease, Climate change are some of the reasons numbers of lions are declining.
