The ancient Namib is the only desert on Earth where a small population of desert-adapted lions occurs. Remarkably, these unique lions continued to survived along Namibia’s Skeleton Coast, but until 20 years ago were merely phantoms – elusive and seldom seen – and then believed to have become extinct. In 1997 scientist Dr. Philip Stander discovered a small pride of survivors in the heart of the desert and began to study the lions: work that has become a lifelong commitment. He has been able to unfold the secrets of these highly adaptive big cats, who seemed to thrive in this harsh environment.
