The firm recently adopted an African Lion to support friends of the National Zoo and help the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute to help play an integral role in saving this majestic species. The African Lion is sadly listed as, “vulnerable” on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. The rapid decline in the African Lion Population is significantly impacted by human conflict and habitat loss.
Proceeds from the program fund animal care and conservation for the African Lions, as well as the more than 2,000 other animals that live in the National Zoo and the Smithsonian Conservation and Biology Institute in Front Royal, Virginia.
Potter Burnett enjoys playing an active role in supporting wildlife conservation initiatives at the National Zoo. They take part in the Zoo’s many educational programs and special events and are excited to visit their Adopted African Lion, often.
