In August we’d like to help raise awareness to “World Lion Day”.
We’ve created a Savanna Ecosystem for you to colour that also has a maze to solve.
Can you draw a path that will get the lion cub back to its family?
You’ll also find the following animals that live in the savanna ecosystem to colour:
Termites, Nile Crocodile, African Rock Python, Superb Starlings, Egyptian Plovers, Leopard Tortoise, Savannah Monitor Lizard,
African Spiny Mouse, Ostrich, Lion cub, Lioness, Male Lion, Butterflies, and Dung Beetles. Along with a few other things you might see in the Savanna such as a Candelabra tree, Termite mounds, assorted grasses and a Safari truck.

Here are some idea’s on how to extend this colouring activity further:
- Research and discuss the IUCN Red List and how it is used to identify which species (and habitats) need help and conservation recovery efforts before they become extinct.
- Research what status Lions are on the IUCN Red List?
- Discuss what threats exist to Lions.
- Count how many animals are on this colouring activity.
- Count how many different species there are on the colouring activity.
Research these fun facts:
- Can an Ostrich run faster than a Cheetah?
- What is the symbiotic relationship between a Nile Crocodile and Egyptian Plover?
- What other symbiotic relationships exist in the animal kingdom?
- Can a Leopard Tortoise swim?
- Can a Dung Beetle Fly? How much weight can a Dung Beetle roll?
- What are a group of lions called? See what the group names are for the other species pictured.
- Why do Termites build their mounds pointing to certain compass angles?
