White Lions are the most legendary animals on Earth – and, tragically, the world’s most hunted trophy. The White Lion Protection Trust was founded by Linda Tucker who has dedicated her life to saving them. Over the last 6 decades White Lions have been forcibly removed from their endemic habitat and sent to zoos and circuses around the world; worse, they have been bred in captive breeding centres to be killed (“Canned Hunting” in the notorious “Blood Lions” industry). Less than 13 White Lions currently survive in their natural environment. As part of the long term strategy to protect the White Lions, this non-profit organisation has been implementing a White Lion Protection PlanTM and has secured vast tracts of land in the ancestral pride lands of the Kruger to Canyons Biosphere.
The WLT focuses on conservation through sustainable development, with particular emphasis on community participation, education and cultural upliftment.
The WLT offers an exclusive opportunity for candidates to volunteer with the White Lion Conservation Project where they will be trained as active members of the conservation monitoring and research team.
Volunteers need to be enthusiastic and adaptable to the changing day-to-day needs of the project. Candidates have a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience whilst making a valuable contribution to the long-term conservation of the white lions.
