The number of lions in Rwanda have risen to more than 40 since 2015 when they were re-introduced after almost two decades of absence.

Following poaching and human activities in Rwanda, they were killed and not a single lion remained by the year 2000, officials said.

In 2015 the government partnered with the South African-based organization to bring seven lions into Rwanda’s Akagera national park.
