Seeing that these little lion cubs grow up strong and healthy isn't just their mother's concern, however. More than 200,000 lions are believed to have roamed the plains of Africa just a century ago; today, after decades of being hunted and losing out habitat to humans, they number as few as 40,000.
Fortunately for this lion family, and for the many other lions living on Masai Mara, they are closely guarded from outside threats, helping to ensure the species' long term survival.
