images appeared on the iconic skyscraper. the display promoted a new documentary. really just an incredible display. >> yeah. >> beautifully done. >> says a lot. cecil's death and the killing of a second african lion have caused zimbabwe to crack down on new hunts. the scientists say the lion population is down more than 50% over 35 years, and one nature group considers it a vulnerable species. dave salmoni is the animal planet's large predator expert, and he joins us from toronto this morning. dave, good morning. hi, dave. >> morning. >> every time i see the pictures of cecil walking around, he looks so majestic to me. like something out of "lion king" the movie. it really is heartbreaking to see him when he's walking around. and i wonder how his death has affected other lions in the reskron ar region and your thoughts on that. >> yeah, i feel like there's a lot of impact that his death had. the immediate impact is on his own pride. obviously, we now know that there was another, you know, coalition member, jericho, another big male that's left by
8:33 am
himslf to defend the females and those cubs which makes them susceptible to any other coalitions. one male by himself is going to have a hard time defending those females and those cubs. and if new males do come in, they're going to kill cecil's cubs in order to have their own. and then long term, obviously the bigger problem with trophy hunting is the fact they're always going after the biggest, the strongest. so what they're doing is they're removing the good genes out of the gene pool. we've actually noticed over the last 30 years that the average size of a male lion has decreased significantly. >> how does trophy hunting work? >> trophy hunting, it doesn't really work, to be honest. it's not a sustainable system. but what they do is typically, you know, these professional hunters will say come to my area. shoot this animal or that. oftentimes they'll have the animal already on their property. they'll send pictures to someone and say hey, would you like to come and kill this thing? and they come over and have their experience.
8:34 am
>> wow. >> do you think this will change things? >> i think it's changed things already. i think it is a great representation. all of this attention that this story is getting represents the globe's feelings on trophy hunting. i think, you know, african countries who make a majority of their income -- some of the southern and eastern parts of africa, the biggest industry they have is ecotourism. so the world is saying we don't -- we don't believe in trophy hunting. the world is saying we'll come to your country. we'll come and look at your animals, but we don't support this. so i think it's -- the awareness always creates a built of change. >> so what can people do at home to help, dave? to take action? >> i think the biggest -- the biggest thing is as i was talking about is, you know, if you're going to go to a certain country to have your once once-in-a-lifetime safari, i think you should spend your money in places where people can't come and do these types of trophy hunts or at least the
8:35 am
legalities are a lot more controlled. the other big thing, obviously, i always tell people is if you have your heart in the right place, if lion conservation is your thing or dolphin or whale or whatever animal it happens to be, you go and you research what the problems are. you see the groups that are doing things that you like, and you help them out. maybe it's with your skills, maybe it's with your money. but there is something you can do for the animals that you love. >> david salmoni, well said. thank you so much. and thunderstorms in chicago forced the locllapalooza music festival to end 30 minutes early on sunday. it drew thousands to grant park along lake michigan. lollapalooza's lineup is bigger than ever. as adriana diaz shows us, it covers all ages thinks to kidsapalooza. ♪ live and let die >> reporter: for fans, chicago's lollapalooza met all expectations. ♪ i don't care long days of music, little room to dance, the requisite and
