CECIL THE LION – 2018 2000 CFA 2 oz Pure Silver Coin – Mint of Poland – Republic of Cameroon
Let’s protect the nature for future generations! We must not allow illegal poaching!
Cecil the Lion, the world’s most famous lion and the symbol of Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe, was killed at the age of 13. Cruel fate befell Cecil when he was shot dead by an enthusiast of the big game hunting, a dentist from Minnesota. The lion was lured from the Park, wounded with a bow and finally killed with the use of a riffle. Cecil’s killing created an outrage among ecological conservationists and lovers of animals around the world.
We irreversibly loose the biodiversity and resources of the natural world. Every fourth mammal, every eighth bird and every third amphibian may soon disappear from the face of the earth. The gloomy fact is that we are the main threat to the survival of many animals. Every day we contribute to the silent drama of many species through barbarous poaching, destruction of natural habitats, excessive emission of carbon dioxide and illegal wildlife trade.
