BRED FOR THE BULLET TM
Every single day in South Africa at least two to three captive bred or tame lions are being killed in canned hunts. And hundreds more are slaughtered annually for the lion bone trade. The Blood Lions story is a compelling call to action to have these practices stopped.
Cecil the lion was killed in Zimbabwe by Walter Palmer, an American recreational big game hunter. Two men in Zimbabwe are being prosecuted in relation to the hunt. Palmer had a permit and has not been charged with any crime.  The killing resulted in international media attention, caused outrage among animal conservationists, criticism by politicians and celebrities and a strong negative response against Palmer. According to Wayne Pacelle of the Humane Society, Cecil had “changed the atmospherics on the issue of trophy hunting around the world.”
Volunteer with Lions Do you have a passion for the wild and a desire to conserve lions and other big cats in their natural habitats? Volunteer with lions on your gap year and you could help these animals who are at risk of extinction, observe their behaviour whilst on safari and assist the local community.
Nikela  Helping People  Saving Wildlife Extract from Nikela.org:  Roughly sixty years ago there were an estimated 450,000 lions in Africa. Today less than 20,000. Some say that when we exclude the captive bred lions of South Africa the number is only about one tenth of that. Lions need protecting!
