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 Academy for Lionhearted Leadership™, 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.

CLICK ON THE LINK and give the gift of a Day of Freedom to Ingwavuma II this Festive Season

Our Little Prince, Ingwavuma II, was born on the 8:8th StarGate Portal to Marah’s son Letaba, and the glorious Khanyezi, a golden lioness who dug her way into our Heartlands from the greater Kruger system 3 years ago. This incredibly strong personality is named after the formidable Ingwavuma I, Linda Tucker’s guardian lion who was tragically hunted by
an American trophy hunter in Timbavati on 22 August 2000.

Pure charm and personality, it was clear he was going to be an ambassador from day one, indicating that he would turn into a true LionHearted Leader in the very near future…

Affectionate, brave and curious, the Sun Prince stole our hearts – who can resist those inquisitive eyes and little white cheeks?
Every day that passes, Ingwavuma gets bigger and more independent – and one day soon he will have to go out and be the leader of a pride of his own.

FOLLOW THE LINK to donate a Day of Freedom to Ingwavuma this Festive Season, and help us acquire more land for Ingwavuma to roam upon.
