ACQUIRE & PROTECT
key tracts of land to protect and expand natural lion habitats
In Africa, lions have been forced to survive on land that is only one-fifth of the size they occupied a few decades ago. If habitats shrink further, and the lion population continues to decline at the same rate, it is predicted that there will be no lions left in the wild in 20 years’ time.
Rapid agricultural expansion and human population increase has resulted in our planet’s wildlife, especially its large predators, becoming second-class citizens.

a worldwide community of lion conservation collaborators
With less than 20 years left to keep lions in the wild, the Kevin Richardson Foundation recognises the need for immediate widespread action. In the digital age there is great power in the hands of individuals, and change can occur through citizen conservationists. The foundation hopes to call on those across the globe who seek to combat wildlife degradation to participate in our campaigns for spreading awareness and fundraising. Working with individuals, artists, academics, well-known personalities and organisations on the ground, we believe the protection of wild lions can become a priority in worldwide conservation efforts.

MAINTAIN & PROTECT
the Kevin Richardson Wildlife Sanctuary and its lions and help bring an end to the Canned Lion Hunting Industry
The Kevin Richardson Wildlife Sanctuary is home to lions (as well as leopard and hyena) rescued from captive-breeding and cub-petting facilities. The Foundation would like to improve the quality of life for these animals, as well as establish better security for them as poaching for the lion bone trade increases steadily.
