District 410A – Captive Lions Awareness Day
Join us on our Captive Lions Awareness Day on Saturday, 8 December 2018, at the Brackenfell PicknPay from 11:00 to 13:00. More than 10 000 Lions are held in captivity in South Africa. At the same time, less than 20 000 Lions still exist in the wild in the whole of Africa. South Africa, one of only 7 hotspots with more than 1000 Lions, counts less than 2 000. As members of Lions Clubs International, we have the responsibility to save our iconic Lion species. District 410A is looking to raise R1000 per Lion on behalf of the Project Lions4Lions.
Raising the awareness of the plight of our Lions in Africa
Our Lions are in need and we need to do our best to save our iconic symbol
Since the Lion bone trade isn’t a “sideline” of the canned hunting industry any more, low-cost mass Lion slaughterhouses have been erected in Free State and probably other provinces as well. The presence of a legal trade clearly results in more and more poaching of wild lions as well as in poaching of lions that live at the very few real sanctuaries in South Africa.
