What is the Land?
At the epicenter of the UNESCO Kruger-to-Canyons Biosphere, this critical wilderness borders the greater Kruger National Park, and spans the arterial river that serves the region. What happens here impacts the entire ecosystem. This 7413 acres of wildlands is at immediate risk of high impact, chemically driven, industrialized farming and township development.
Why This Land?
This area was declared a Sacred Natural Site hundreds of years before Kruger was proclaimed a national park. The White Lions are site specific, yet commercial trophy hunting takes place on the borders of their Heartlands, risking the continuity of this critically rare species. Strategically, the land for acquisition secures neighboring territory for future generations of White Lions, free of trophy hunting.
When Must It Be Acquired?
For immediate and critically urgent acquisition. The expansion of the White Lion territories will allow for our young pride males to take up their governance to ensure the flourishing of this capstone animal, whose role is directly linked to ecosystem regeneration. If we fail to secure this land, the entire ecosystem is at risk of contamination and continued degradation due to the proposed developments.
