Lion cubs are photographed following closely behind their mother at night in #Gorongosa National Park.  Field cameras are strategically placed throughout the Park by the Gorongosa Lion Project to provide crucial tracking information for a historic recovery effort to restore the lion population.  You too can help us track and monitor the lion population (and a myriad of other wildlife) using #WildCam – SIGN UP at
