The Linda Tucker Foundation’s South African operation has it’s HQ in the heart of White Lion ancestral territories, in the Protected Area created by the Global White Lion Protection Trust called Tsau.
Tsau is a San word meaning both “Star” and “Lion” – and legend tells us it was the first word of First Man.

Linda Tucker is Founder and CEO of the Linda Tucker Foundation. She is also Ambassador in Chief of the Global White Lion Protection Trust, a community based conservation organisation which she founded in 2002 and which has implemented the White Lion Protection Plan™: a leadership model for sustainable living with mutual benefits for People, Land and Lions.
Linda Tucker’s community-based conservation efforts in the Kruger to Canyons Biosphere have been enabled by powerful partnerships with other organisations and NPOs, including Corelight (USA) and NOVO Foundation (USA), Wilderness Trust (UK), Wildlands Conservation Trust (SA).
Support for Linda’s LionHearted Leadership™ initiatives has flowed in from all corners of the earth and across all cultures.
Luminaries in support have included world conservation legend, Dr Ian Player; the “green royal” of the Netherlands, Princess Irene von Lippe; Retired High Chief of Canada’s Native Dene People, Francois Paulette; Advocate of High Court of South Africa and MP of South African Parliament, King Phathekile Holomisa; former Chair of South African Parliament and current Ambassador to Washington, Mninwa Mahlangu; Archbishop Desmond Tutu, President of the Worldwide Indigenous Science Network, Dr Apela Colorado; President of Tecno AO Asia, Dr Izumi Masakawa and many other contributors from all walks of life whose support over the years is deeply valued.
In addition, there have been a number of critically important land benefactors, without which the efforts to save the White Lions and their gene pool in the wild of their endemic habitat would have been in vain.
These benefactors include Mireille Vince, Leslie-Temple Thurston, Brad Laughlin, Sheryl Leach and Angela Neumann, who’s generous donations have secured large tracks of wilderness lands in the heart of White Lion ancestral territories.

“The 10th Law of LionHearted Leadership™ is Good Governance. If I understood anything about the Great Knowledge, it had to be that treasure or gold is not a material issue”
