CAMPAIGNING for LIONS

Linda Tucker has spent the past two decades campaigning, presenting in Parliament, and working with scientists and indigenous leaders from all continents, implementing a survival strategy for White Lions, and all that these majestic animals represent for the restoration of ecosystems and human systems.


Her model for human leadership is based on her love for lions, king of animals.

Linda is regularly invited as key-note speaker at international congresses, public events, and live TV interviews, where she speaks out about the notorious ‘Canned Hunting” or Blood Lions” industry that breeds lions in cages as blood sport.

In 2014, she hosted the Global Big Cat Alliance in the heart of White Lion ancestral territories, a gathering in which scientists and indigenous medicine people from around the globe convened and brought together modern scientific methods and ancient wisdom to help save the species.
In 2015, she received Woman of Impact Award and Governor’s Citation of Maryland, USA.

Linda has presented at South African Parliament (2007/8), and British Parliament (2013), calling for the protection of the White Lions and the prohibition of trophies at ports in the UK and USA.
Now she has launched 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 and give the “silent stakeholders” (Lions and Nature) a chance to be heard in human policy making.

LionHearted Leadership™ in Action

A Desperate Situation

In 2009, at the Wild9 Congress (Mexico, with delegates from 54 countries), she had a Resolution passed, demanding the protection of the White Lions by international governments and appropriate bodies.

However, the South African government has failed to protect this rare heritage by law.

Instead, White Lions have been forcibly removed from the wilds of their endemic habitat for over 5 decades, and taken into captivity in zoos and circuses around the globe, and captive centres in South Africa – where hand-reared lions are bred to be killed.

White Lions form the epicentre of the notorious killing industry, of which touristic commercial cub-petting parks are a key link in the bloody supply chain.
In these captive-breeding operations, White Lions and other rare wild animals are bred to be handled as cubs, then killed as commercial trophies for the Western Market and body parts for Eastern Market. Today, it is a barbarous flourishing industry, now referred to as “Blood Lions.”

The situation has only started to shift after the outcry sparked by the CECIL event last year, with the worldwide public demanding change. The C.E.C.I.L Act (Conserving Ecosystems by Ceasing Importation of Large Animals Act) was passed through US congress offering some hope of more responsible management of trade in lions and the other so-called “Big 5” trophy animals on the commercial hunter’s “most desired” list.

The Blood Lions documentary went on to expose the horror of this large-scale industry to the world through global TV channels, social media campaigns, and engagement in political platforms.

Politicians are finally responding with legislation at least partially limiting lion trophy imports, and implementing tighter measures of control. Illegal trade in endangered species is the focus of the clamp down, but it’s business as usual for the legalized commercial trophy hunters.

So the question still remains.
If you are a lion today, what would you say to the policy makers?

So you want to make a difference?

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™.

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.
