Linda Tucker Foundation - white lion protection and preservation

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.

UPDATE AT LAST FROM ROBIN MCDONALD - SANCTUARY MANAGER - THE LUPUS FOUNDATION T/AS TSITSIKAMMA WOLF SANCTUARY: Hi everyone - to our families and friends, and Facebook friends. We have driven far and wide to get a tiny signal to send out an Update. Our home and sanctuary is absolutely devastated with 1000s of rands damage and we need public and corporate support to rebuild the Tsitsikamma Wolf Sanctuary. We are currently closed to the public and will be for many days to come. BUT - despite this all human beings and wolves are SAFE. Thank goodness. We spent the entire night monitoring fences, winds and the raging fire... Please.... Rally people and companies you know that can sponsor funds for poles, fencing, equipment etc. this is our biggest effort. We are extremely proud of the volunteers that live at the sanctuary and grateful to the team from Doctors Across Borders (t/as Doctors Beyond Medicine), who with one 4x4 Fortuner and our sanctuary bakkie gave their all. Tremendous effort given to support the local people and animals that were driven off burning grounds as the fire swept past within uncomfortable proximity to the sanctuary. We are now driving through the land across our way and it's massive devastation, trying to help anyone that we can... No one has power or water, choppers bombing the fire sites, winds being monitored very closely and everyone from the sanctuary volunteering help where they can to ensure we can bring everyone to safety... So, humans and animals accounted for, damage unimaginable and funds required desperately.... If anyone is willing to donate please do so: The Lupus Foundation Nedbank, Claremont Branch Number: 104609 Account Number: 2046548558 (Savings Account) SWIFT CODE- NEDSZAJJ Or go to our "Go Fund Me" page www.gofundme.com/rebuilding-the-wolf-sanctuary?pc=fb_co_dashboard_a&rcid=54e8a5350d854eda99c45d56...

Heartbreaking news from our friends and colleagues at Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary, who have lost two of their rescued lions to poachers in a horrific attack. We know the grief of losing a life, especially a life so lovingly fought for and cared for, and we offer our deepest sympathy to Minunette and Savannah Heuser, owners of Emoya. The two lions, poached apparently for their body parts, are part of a group of 33 former circus lions rescued in 2016 from circuses in Peru and Colombia.
WE WILL REDOUBLE our efforts to have lions legally, properly protected. We will always protect the sacred.
Minunette and Savannah, our hearts are with you and your lions.
May Peace Prevail on Earth.
