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.

Ignite Your LionHeart - A LionHearted Leadership™ Retreat with Linda Tucker (in English with German Translation)

"When you bring your true nature back into harmony with Mother Nature, realigning head with heart, you suddenly find you're able to restore balance, health and resilience in your own world. I call this amazing process: 'A-LION-MENT'." - Linda Tucker

In this exclusive retreat, Linda Tucker shares what the legendary White Lions can teach us about our own capacity for LionHearted Leadership in a world in transition.

Over this transformational weekend, Linda will work with you to introduce the teachings that she was initiated into, over 25 years ago, by Shangaan medicine women and Shamans. After an introduction into the 13 Laws of LionHearted Leadership™, each participant will experience in depth one or more of the Laws, as you actively review and reshape your own unique blueprint and consider how you can adjust your own course to follow your true purpose as an awakening LionHeart.

We will get outside into nature as much as we can, in a pristine natural area of beauty and quiet.

This seminar has a limited number of spaces. Your reservation is definitive only with payment of the participation fee to the Fondation Lascaux. Please book the room also directly at the Fondation Lascaux.

ABOUT LINDA TUCKER:
Linda Tucker grew up in South Africa, where in 1991 she was rescued from an angered pride of Lions by a Shangaan medicine woman known as The Lion Queen of Timbavati. Since then, Linda faithfully and courageously works with and teaches these ancient truths which she was initiated in to become a lion priestess herself. She is author of Mystery of the White Lions, Saving the White Lions, and LionHearted Leadership™.

"Wenn du deine wahre Natur wieder in Einklang mit der Mutter Natur bringst, wenn du den Kopf mit dem Herzen in Einklang bringst, stellst du plötzlich fest, dass du in der Lage bist, das Gleichgewicht, die Gesundheit und die Widerstandsfähigkeit in deiner eigenen Welt wieder herzustellen.

LionHearted Leadership™: The Meaning of the White Lions for Humanity
Lecture with Linda Tucker (in English with German translation)

"Although my work with the White Lions dates back over decades, my focus these days is on harmonious coexistence between people and Nature - that's how we remember our true natures. Out of decades of campaigning for these luminous animals and their right to survive and flourish in the natural world, a LionHearted Leadership™ model has emerged that's capable of igniting our won hearts and healing our human world." - Linda Tucker

In this public lecture, pioneering conservationist and author, Linda Tucker, shares what the legendary White Lions - Nature's King of Kings - can teach us about our own capacity for LionHearted Leadership™ in a world in transition.

As ecologists have now established, the lion, as apex predator, restores health and balance to all animal and plant species in its ecosystem: all the way down the trophic levels of the food chain to the earth. Much as the Lion is responsible for maintaining continuity of life in the ecosystems, so the human leader takes responsibility for the continuity of living heritage.

The 13 Laws are imperative teachings that we, as a species, are called to urgently return to now, if we are to rebalance and bring harmony back to the world.

ABOUT LINDA TUCKER:
Award-winning conservationist and author, Linda Tucker's life and work has focused on protecting the legendary White Lions as a living heritage, and inspirational leadership model. Her life with lions began in 1991 after a threatening encounter with a pride of lions which prompted her to mobilize a global movement, campaigning through Parliaments, world congresses, TV interviews, NPOs; and by securing vast protected heritage lands in the heart of their ancestral territories, she has successfully rewilded the White Lions.

************************************************************

LionHearted Leadership™:
Die Bedeutung der Weissen Löwen für die menschliche Zukunft
Vortrag mit Linda Tucker
(in englischer sprache mit deutscher Übersetzung)

"Nach jahrzehntelanger Arbeit mit den Weissen Löwen konzentriere ich mich heute auf eine harmonische Koexistenz von Mensch und Natur – welche uns an unsere wahre Natur erinnert. Aus vielen Kampagnen für das Geburtsrecht dieser strahlenden Tiere, in ihrer natürlichen Umgebung zu überleben und zu gedeihen, hat sich ein LionHearted Leadership-Modell entwickelt. Ein Zukunftsmodell mit dem Potential, unsere Herzen zu entflammen und einen Beitrag zu leisten an die Heilung unseres Planeten." - Linda Tucker

Linda Tucker, die mit vielen Preisen und Ehrungen ausgezeichnete naturschützerin und autorin, wird uns in ihrem bewegenden Vortrag in die Welt der Weissen Löwen mitneh- men und uns mitteilen, was die «Könige der Könige» der natur uns über unsere eige- nen Fähigkeiten für eine LionHearted Leadership™ in dieser Welt im umbruch lehren kön- nen.

So wie der Löwe für die aufrechterhaltung der Lebenskontinuität in seinem Ökosystem verantwortlich ist, so ist es unsere Verantwortung, die Kontinuität unseres lebendigen Erbes zu bewahren .und zu den uralten Gesetzen zurückzukehren, die unerlässlich sind, wenn wir in der Welt Harmonie wiederherstellen wollen.

Als wegweisende naturschützerin konzentriert sich Linda tucker darauf, die legendären Weissen Löwen als leben- diges Erbe und inspirierendes Führungsmodell zu schützen. ihr Leben mit Löwen begann 1991 nach einer lebensbedroh- lichen Erfahrung mit einem Rudel Löwen, die sie dazu veran- lasste, eine globale Bewegung zu mobilisieren, Kampagnen durch Parlamente, Weltkongresse, tV-interviews, nPos zu lancieren. Es gelang ihr grosse teile der Wildnis als geschütztes Gebiet für die Wiederansiedlung der Weissen Löwen zu sichern.

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.
