The Linda Tucker Foundation was founded by author and conservationist Linda Tucker to support lions and LionHearted Leadership™ in humanity.

The legendary White Lions are the most charismatic animal on earth – yet, tragically, the most targeted trophy. Regarded as the “King of Kings” by African elders, they were removed from their natural habitat into zoos and circuses around the globe, and worse, captive death camps in South Africa, where they have been actively bred for the bullet.
Linda Tucker has dedicated her life to campaigning for the protection of the rare White Lions, ensuring their restoration as the capstone species in their ecosystem, the UN designated Kruger to Canyons Biosphere. She is also CEO and Founder of the Global White Lion Protection Trust.

According to Linda Tucker, the leadership of tomorrow is LionHearted Leadership – characterized by that “quality of fearlessness inspired by Love and Respect for Nature, that enables us to change our world.”

As a living example of leadership in action, Linda Tucker equips others with the tools to become powerful agents of change at a time when this LionHearted quality is critically needed.

She does so through her White Lion Leadership Academy; her StarLion eco-educational program for emerging youth leaders; and her own ongoing pioneering efforts together with her partner Jason A. Turner and the Global White Lion Protection Trust, which models mutual benefit for Lions, Land and People in one of the world’s last surviving wildlife regions.

Now she is launching the One United Roar Talent Challenge, a worldwide video contest that will provide children (under 15) and young adults (16-21) with the chance to help save our lions and our planet.

The Talent Challenge is designed to activate the LionHeart in humans. Launched on 22 August 2016 in the month of Leo to commemorate CECIL the Lion (whose brutal killing last year at this time by an American tourist touched the hearts of millions), the One United Roar Talent Challenge invites you to speak for the lions, whether you sing, dance, act, or give a speech, make your ROAR heard.

Amazing prizes include an opportunity to travel to White Lion territories, and become an ambassador for lions during the CITES Convention 2016, when the world’s policy makers will determine the fate of Panthera leo.

When the going gets tough, the LionHearts are unstoppable!

Despite the sad outcome of ANC cabinet members unable to stand united to remove our corrupt president through a Vote of No Confidence, we are encouraged knowing that emerging next-gen leadership is on its way up - and truly LionHearted in its commitment to address key issues of transformation.

The most recent “Ignition of the LionHeart” training culminated on World Lion Day: Brave, Strong and True.

It was again a very special group of people, and one of the LionHearted participants shared with us how she experienced this intense training:
"Lionheartedness for me means, feeling your strength, your footprint, your very unique gift with what you came in this life.
And seeing it as a gift and not as a burden.
And with all our different, unique footprints treating our world with the love, respect and the harmony it deserves."

Thank you, to all the unique souls that participated this Igniting the LionHeart Training!

Today, a new group of special people start their one week intensive training in the heart of White Lion ancestral territories, to ignite the LionHearted in their emerging leadership. The training is intense, focused and experiential, a unique resilience training based on the wisdom of an ancient Lion-Human contract of co-governance that defines true leadership today. Igniting the LionHeart is all about actualizing the dream you are holding in the very core of your heart and freeing yourself from restrictions by putting your unique gifts into practice.

With deep sadness, we honor this great lioness, who survived against monumental odds, and often came visiting our pride on our eastern frontier. She was an expert huntress, and eye witness accounts describe her pulling down game for her own pride. A recent scientific paper established that White Lions are successful hunters in the wild (www.open-science-repository.com/biology-45011830.html). Stress in their natural system, however, including higher incidence of poaching, Bovine Tuberculosis, and the impact of commercial lion trophy hunting, has unnaturally increased the level of conflict amongst lion prides. Commercial trophy hunting often targets pride males, impacting not only the individual lion hunted, but destabilizing the entire pride structure. If Timbavati resumes their lion trophy hunting policy (which was halted briefly following the notorious Cecil incident), the future survival of white lions in the wild, as well as tawny lions carrying the white lion gene, remains in jeopardy.

With each step of this 20" x 30" replication of the cover of my first novel, I am learning how to "let go" of any doubts and just go with the flow. I have never attempted a textile painting this large. I use meditation in every piece of art you see, I then illustrate what is given to me. This inner voice is in everyone and it will allow you to tap into the artist within. I even wrote a book about it.
