    Rotterdam Zoo current holdings (Panthera leo persica):
    Lalana (F) with her three cubs from 2018, Asha, Reena en Mette (F). Lalana arrived from Kraków(?) in 2018, I believe this is her first ever time reproducing. She is around 11 years old.

    Chica/Churchilla (F) is held seperately. She arrived in 2016 from Berlin, she must be 15 or so now. She used to live together with Bente (2006-2021, Rotterdam, daughter of Shantee)

    The father of the cubs is Aapal (in Blijdorp from his transport from Singapore in 2014 untill his death in 2020)

    Beekse Bergen has four lion groups. Two at the safari park and two at the safari resort. Almost all lions are related (the four oldest lionesses are the mothers of all other lions born in the Beekse Bergen), except for one group in the safari resort. Whether all these lions still live there and whether I have them in the right group I am not 100% sure.

    Safaripark group 1
    1,0 Antoon (26-10-12, Beekse Bergen)
    1,0 Chris (26-10-12, Beekse Bergen)
    0,1 Steffie (26-10-12, Beekse Bergen)
    0,1 Melissa (01-05-14, Beekse Bergen)

    Safaripark group 2
    1,0 Mandela (born in 2014 at Pairi Daiza, arrived in 2018?)
    0,1 Evy (26-10-12, Beekse Bergen)
    0,1 Cocky (01-05-14, Beekse Bergen)
    0,1 Brandy (arrived in 2018 from Wildlands, she is a sister of Tia who lives at Wildlands)
    0,1 Dalila (07-04-13, Dierenpark Emmen) (arrived in 2018 from Wildlands)

    Safari Resort group 1
    1,0 Jeroen (born in 2016 at Beekse Bergen)
    1,0 André (born in 2016 at Beekse Bergen)
    0,1 Marga (28-07-2004, Beekse Bergen)
    0,1 Milou (born in 2008 at Beekse Bergen)
    0,1 Joy (born in 2014 at Beekse Bergen)
    0,1 Victory (born in 2014 at Beekse Bergen)
    0,1 Lieke (born in 2014 at Beekse Bergen)

    Safari Resort group 2
    1,0 Luq (born in 2016 at Beekse Bergen)
    0,1 Petra (28-07-2004, Beekse Bergen)
    0,1 Mariska (born in 2008 at Beekse Bergen)
    0,1 Paula (born in 2016 at Beekse Bergen)
    0,1 Nala (born in 2017 at Beekse Bergen)
    0,1 Sarabi (born in 2017 at Beekse Bergen)
    0,1 Rhaya (born in 2017 at Beekse Bergen)

    Ouwehands Dierenpark (Panthera leo krugeri) (white lions)
    1,0 Credo (born in 2010, arrived in 2010)
    0,1 Ilanga (23-03-10, arrived in 2010)
    0,1 Ilumbo (06-03-13, Ouwehands Dierenpark)
    0,1 Bandhura (23-03-10, arrived in 2010)
    0,1 Luna (23-03-10, arrived in 2010)
    According to Zootierliste there are only 1,3 animals. So one of the females is probably no longer there, but I do not know which one.

    Wereldtuinen Mondo Verde (Panthera leo krugeri) (white lions)
    1,0 Amir (arrived in 2015 from Germany)
    0,1 Saffi (arrived in 2015 from Germany)
    These two lions are there in any case. There should be more, but I don't know exactly how many.

    Haha, thanks! I searched via google, facebook pages of the zoos (via you're on desktop you can search through all posted messages) and facebook groups of the zoos (in these groups are many regular visitors who usually know the names). And Zootierliste also helps sometimes. Almost all of this information is publicly available, you just need to know where to look and how to search.
