Abstract : The purpose of the survey is to provide interested parties with additional data on the conservation status of the lion in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).This survey is considered as a contribution to the issue, which is already addressed by a number of scientists, managers and authorities, etc. The intention of the survey is to be much more a "food for thought" than a conclusive statement. The survey is attempting, not to be competitive with other surveys, but rather to be a source of complementary input. It is hopefully expected that some new sources of information and some innovative approaches will be provided and will help to improve the knowledge in this matter. A variety of views should stimulate the discussion on this important topic and, hopefully, better progress will be achieved by the entire conservation community. It is understood that the present survey is limited to a general review of the global status of the lion. Therefore, the survey should not be regarded as a planning exercise, i.e. the study does not comprise any action plan or conservation strategy. The elaboration of a proper strategy for the long-term conservation of the lion would require a slightly different exercise with another methodology and involvement of appropriate authorities, etc. For this reason, no conservation measures are proposed, nor ranked priorities suggested or management plans recommended.
