Lion cubs born through Artificial Insemination at Ukutula Conservation Centre & Biobank

A letter was submitted on behalf of 19 organisations regarding the birth of 2 cubs through artificial insemination at a captive facility outside Johannesburg in collaboration with the Mammal Research Institute (University of Pretoria). This submission includes some of the world’s leading lion conservation and research organisations, and representatives from multiple sectors including animal welfare, animal protection, multi-cultural and faith-based NGO’s. Based on our cumulative knowledge and experience, we do not support the captive breeding of lions, whether assisted or not, because it does not contribute to biodiversity conservation or address the main threats to wild lion conservation.
