A landmark photographic book which portrays the lifecycle of the African Lion in all its natural beauty, drama and raw ferocity.
Lion: Pride Before The Fall, presents a stunning collection of wild Lion photography with a clear, vital message: join the fight to protect the last remaining wild African Lions… or risk losing them forever.
Conceived by critically-acclaimed photographer George Logan in collaboration with The Born Free Foundation, this remarkable wildlife book brings the plight of Africa’s remaining Lions into sharp focus with its array of poignant, thought-provoking images. This book serves as a stark reminder of all that we stand to lose. Because with fewer than 20,000 Lions left, the time to act is now if, together, we are to secure a future for Africa’s most iconic species.
This large format, hardback coffee table book of 176 pages features a stunning collection of photographs, celebrating the lifecycle of the Lion in all its raw beauty, as well as a dedicated conceptual art section.
We will support this project with a short film, exhibitions, social media campaigns and publicity stunts, all aimed at raising funds and awareness for Lion conservation.
All proceeds from this book will raise vital funds to support, protect and help re-establish ‘The Last Lions of Meru’ in Kenya.

By about 3 months of age, cubs can begin following their mothers and will start to eat meat. They may start participating in hunts from around 11 months, although they can’t survive on their own until they are around 2 years old.
Lion interaction with other species usually ends up with the other animal becoming a meal. However, it’s not always one way.
Confrontations with Hyenas, Buffalo, Elephant, Hippos and Crocodiles, can often result in severe problems for Lions… especially the cubs.
“This remarkable book opens our eyes and hearts to the world of the African Lion, of one of our planet’s most magnificent and yet vulnerable wild creatures. Symbols of power and strength, Lions have all too often had their other characteristics forgotten or ignored – their loving nature, their loyalty, how they protect their young, their jealousy, competitiveness and ferocity.”
There are many wonderful wildlife photographers, but George’s images are amongst the most intriguing, thought-provoking and original.

The human race has to now decide whether it is prepared to share the planet with the last few surviving of the most iconic predator.
