A lioness was followed in her fight for survival over the course of two years for new documentary The Last Lions.

Narrated by Jeremy Irons, the film was made by husband and wife team Dereck and Beverly Joubert.

The Jouberts say the film is an effort to draw attention to the dramatic decrease in the world's lion population.

African lions need all the help they can get if they are to survive. Support Humane Society International's petition to give the African lion ESA protection. https://secure.humanesociety.org/site/Advocacy?cmd... BACKGROUND ---------- Please see website page below: http://www.humanesociety.org/news/news/2011/03/pro... On March 1, 2011, Humane Society International and The Humane Society of the United States, along with Born Free USA, Born Free Foundation, Defenders of Wildlife, The Fund for Animals, and the International Fund for Animal Welfare, petitioned to have the African lion listed as "endangered" under the federal Endangered Species Act. The African lion is disappearing There are fewer than 40,000 African lions in the wild—some scientists estimate as few as 23,000. Over the past 30 years, their population has dropped by at least 48.5 percent. The survivors have lost most of their homelands; African lions occupy less than one quarter of their historic range.
