World Lion Day

 There are half as many African lions as there were 25 years ago.

Why? The answer is heartbreakingly simple: It’s humankind.

Whether it’s habitat loss due to human population growth, poaching for pelts and bones, killing for sport, or climate change, people are the cause when it comes to the negative impacts decimating lion populations. But there is hope. While we are the threat, we are also the answer.

As revered members of their communities, these warriors can intervene to help their neighbors better coexist with lions and stop retaliatory attacks, protecting humans and lions alike.

You CAN help

Besides volunteering, donating, and advocating for preserving our wildlife and their environments, I am donating net profits from my photo book “Friends.”

“Friends”, Your purchase WILL help!!

“Friends” is offered Exclusively on Apple Books.

A great deal of what I am doing with my advocacy work is to offer a voice to those who may not be able to speak up for themselves.

The purpose of this book is to share photos of many of our non-human “Friends” with a larger audience.  All photos were taken by the author

These “Friends” give us the impetus to speak up for them, our environment, and our habitat.

Net Profits from  “Friends” will be contributed to the Woodland Park Zoo for their Conservation programs. 

Woodland Park Zoo saves wildlife and inspires everyone to make conservation a priority in their lives.
