MAPS IN THE NEWS:
Some large mammals, like elephants and rhinos, are going extinct in the public eye. Others, like giraffes and lions, are quietly going extinct. Lion populations have declined by 40% in the last 20 years and by 90% in the last century. This map, from the big-cat NGO Panthera, compares the lion's historic range (in light orange) to its present range (in dark orange). www.panthera.org/cms/sites/default/files/Panthera_LionRangeMap_January2017.pdf
