Fifty years ago, Africa had nearly half a million lions. Today there are around 20,000. To make matters worse, unlike many other elephants, lions have virtually no protection under government mandates or through international agreements. This is the starting point for a disturbing, well-researched and beautifully made Cri de Coeur by husband and wife Dereck and Beverly Joubert, award-winning filmmakers from Botswana who have been Explorers-in-Residence at National Geographic for more than 20 years. Pointing to poaching as a primary threat, the Jouberts pointed to the Lion Pride, which is on the list of ecotourists - an industry that brings in $ 200 billion a year worldwide - and is solid evidence of the moral obligation we have to protect the lions (as well as other threatened "big cats", including tigers) and the economic purpose that such protection would have. And taking into account that big cats are at the top of the food chain - and that their elimination would affect all species below them and result in a total collapse of the ecosystem - the need becomes of utmost urgency.
Unique movie from 2011, a real hit in the cinemas in it's times. The Last Lions can look similar to other english movies you usually watch online, but it isn't similar. The Last Lions is kind of surprise of 2011, the rest of movies made in United States wasn't as successful as this one. With such good actors cast, the movie just can't be bad. The Last Lions was produced in United States and directed by Dereck Joubert. To start watching, you just need to click the button on the player, if it does not work, then report the movie to support.
