Global White Lion Protection Trust

The Linda Tucker Foundation emerged out of the ground breaking scientific work of the Global White Lion Protection Trust which Linda established in 2002 with her partner, Lion ecologist Jason Turner.

The Global White Lion Trust was founded on nearly 10 years of cultural and scientific research as Jason and Linda grappled with the scientific, historical and spiritual significance of the White Lion.
Jason was at the forefront of the project to identify the genetic marker that sets the White Lion aside as a rare sub species of panthera leo, and was also largely responsible for the unprecedented success of the undertaking to re-wild the technically extinct White Lions into their endemic habitat in the Timbavati region. It is thanks to these efforts that 13 White Lions are now living in their natural habitat – the only 13 in the world with that privilege, as all the other White Lions in the world are in zoos, circuses and captive breeding programs which feed the lucrative cub-petting and “Canned Hunting” industries.

The impressive list of achievements of the White Lion Trust earned the respect of conservation leaders, indigenous authorities and renowned personalities the world over and has created a benchmark for the implementation of responsible, sustainable leadership in conservation.

In the story of the White Lions captured so brilliantly in Linda’s two books, Mystery of the White Lions (2001) and Saving the White Lions (2013), the threads of physical science and sacred science have been demonstrably inextricable.

The deep wisdom of the ages has walked hand in hand with cutting edge scientific understanding, each thread informing, supporting and edifying the other. This inseparable, symbiotic relationship continues in the work of the White Lion Trust and the Linda Tucker Foundation, with the Linda Tucker Foundation emerging to take on a global educational, ambassadorial and inspirational role in unceasing support of the ongoing work of the White Lion Trust, always in the best interests of the legendary White Lions.

Many people today are paralysed, understandably frightened and confused about how to become effective in a world where destruction seems inevitable. The Fear is real. But so are the Laws for turning Fear into empowered and joyous action –

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.
