Lions population


The Kenya Wildlife Service says the country is losing 100 lions per year while the current population is estimated to be less than 2,000. In 1900, the lion population in Africa was about one million, but 50 years later, it had declined to 500,000.
Other than being the symbol for national strength, they are among the Big Five, a major attraction for visitors to Kenya.” There were 2,749 lions in Kenya in 2002 and their population dropped to 2,280 by 2004 and to roughly 2,000 today, according to KWS figures.

The following were identified as key contributors to lion population decline:

  • Habitat loss and degradation

  • Reduction in prey base

  • Human lion conflict

  • Lack of incentives for the communities to tolerate lions leading to a negative perception of lions and lack of support for their conservation.

  • Ineffective lion population management.

  • Emerging illegal trade in lion bones and other body parts for traditional medicine and lion trophies.

How does stress affect health?

The human body is designed to experience stress and react to it. Stress can be positive, keeping us alert, motivated, and ready to avoid danger. Stress becomes negative when a person faces continuous challenges without relief or relaxation between stressors. As a result, the person becomes overworked, and stress-related tension builds. The body’s autonomic nervous system has a built-in stress response that causes physiological changes to allow the body to combat stressful situations. This stress response, also known as the “fight or flight response”, is activated in case of an emergency. However, this response can become chronically activated during prolonged periods of stress. Prolonged activation of the stress response causes wear and tear on the body – both physical and emotional.
Stress that continues without relief can lead to a condition called distress – a negative stress reaction. Distress can disturb the body’s internal balance or equilibrium, leading to physical symptoms such as headaches, an upset stomach , elevated blood pressure , chest pain , sexual dysfunction , and problems sleeping. Emotional problems can also result from distress. These problems include depression , panic attacks , or other forms of anxiety and worry. Research suggests that stress also can bring on or worsen certain symptoms or diseases. Stress is linked to 6 of the leading causes of death: heart disease, cancer, lung ailments, accidents,
cirrhosis of the liver , and suicide.
Stress also becomes harmful when people engage in the compulsive use of substances or behaviors to try to relieve their stress. These substances or behaviors include food, alcohol, tobacco, drugs, gambling, sex, shopping, and the Internet. Rather than relieving the stress and returning the body to a relaxed state, these substances and compulsive behaviors tend to keep the body in a stressed state and cause more problems. The distressed person becomes trapped in a vicious circle.
