Over the next few days, South Africa’s government is in negotiations about whether or not to continue the legalized captive breeding of lions in order to export their bones and body parts to the Asian market. The Department of Environmental Affairs has already tabled an increased quota of lion skeletons to 1500 exports every year. Lions are also being bred for cub-petting, walking with tourists, and blood sport (“canned lion hunting”) in a whole scale cuddle-to-kill industry.
This has to end.
The decision will be made by early next week (1st week of September 2018).
This timing is absolutely crucial for the future of our lions. Join us in this Global Prayer in support of lions globally and specifically in South Africa, in achieving their right to freedom.
We are focussing on attaining freedom for the lions to live safely in their natural habitat; freedom to be treated with love and respect, and freedom in upholding their rightful place as apex representatives in Nature. When we protect the Lion, we protect the Ecosystem. When we save the Lion, we save the Earth.
Join Linda Tucker, CEO of the Global White Lion Protection Trust and Wynter Worsthorne, internationally recognized interspecies communicator, in this global effort to help manifest this intention and bring freedom of lions into reality.
Wynter is based in Cape Town and has been practicing as a Professional Animal Communicator since 2002.

In 1991, after being rescued by a Tsonga medicine woman from a dangerous encounter with a pride of lions, Linda Tucker gave up a career in international marketing and fashion to become a conservationist. Since then she has dedicated her life to the urgent protection of the critically endangered White Lions, regarded as the King of Kings by African elders. Despite their rarity and cultural importance, the White Lions have no protected status and may be trophy hunted in the wild and in captivity.
