Werribee Open Range Zoo

Meet the Lion Cubs

Nilo and her four adorable lion cubs are out exploring at Werribee Open Range Zoo. The best time to see the cubs will be early in the morning from 9:30am-10.30am. As with all young ones, the cubs will need their rest so we ask for visitors’ patience as they move into the dens to rest and feed.

 

Beads for Wildlife

Lions are an iconic part of the African savannah, yet they are disappearing at an alarming rate. In the last two decades the population has decreased by 43% and it’s estimated that there may be as few as 20,000 Lions remaining in the wild.

Kenya is one of the last strongholds for the species and visitors to Zoos Victoria can help working to help protect wildlife in Northern Kenya through the community-based Beads for Wildlife program.
