>>Sad to report Marnus is no longer in the field <<
Saving lions is good.
Saving their habitat even better.
Like humans, lions need a home.
Their home consists of large wild spaces with natural prey, water and shelter.
Unfortunately people keep gobbling up their wild spaces.
More and more lions are being left homeless.
When this happens they prey on farmers' cattle and goats.
Farmers don’t like this of course
and kill the lions.
Just 60 years ago there were
450,000 wild lions in Africa...
Today? Less than 20,000!
To save them we must save their homes... their wild spaces.
Entire ecosystems are needed for all wildlife's survival.
Some large organizations are working hard at this.
However, in a remote corner of Namibia there is a remarkable man.
A man with a passion for lions, understanding of lions and what’s needed to save their wild spaces.
