HELP PROTECT WHITE LIONS FROM CANNED HUNTING!
With Your Help ZWF Plans to Rescue More White Lions from Canned Hunting Operations in South Africa
Save White Lion Cubs!
There are approximately 35,000 wild lions left in the world today. Even more rare are white lions. These rare treasures, are coveted as “trophies” by hunters. Now they are being farmed on South African hunting ranches to be born and raised for captive “canned hunts.”
The Zoological Wildlife Foundation has been rescuing precious cubs from a sure death at the hands of hunters seeking a white lion trophy. Just recently ZWF saved Kunto and Kahina and brought them back to the safety of our facility in Miami, Florida. The story so captivated the hearts of Americans that Good Morning America tweeted about the rescue and several other news agencies reported the event. Kunto and Kahina joined Kumba and Khiera, the two white lion cubs we rescued from the same fate in Febraury 2014. Now we are planning to save at least two more cubs from certain death.
White lions are a rare color mutation of the Timbavati area of South Africa. White lions are not a separate subspecies and are thought to be indigenous to the Timbavati region of South Africa for centuries.
ZWF believes in creating educational opportunities for people who may never see these incredible felines in the wild. Our philosophy of employing real animal ambassadors creates an intimate connection with average people and fosters the spirit of conservation.
