This week we wanted to share a video from another perspective: from one of our volunteers! This was shot and edited by Caroline Racapé - thanks for letting us share Caroline 🦁 There's still time to donate to the #LandForLions campaign! Click here to get involved: Subscribe here: and help #SaveLions Website: Facebook: Instagram: The Kevin Richardson Wildlife Sanctuary's mission is to provide a self-sustaining African carnivore sanctuary for the purposes of wild species preservation through education, awareness and funding, especially pertaining to the rapid decline of large carnivores in Africa due to habitat loss, human-predator conflict, unscrupulous hunting, disease and their illegal trade. To raise awareness, Kevin has now set up his YouTube Channel 'LionWhispererTV'. The channel is all about raising awareness about not only the declining numbers of lions, but also how this rapid decrease is happening. By watching these videos, you are directly contributing to our scheme of land acquisition. Kevin captures the majority of his footage on GoPro cameras, allowing the viewer to get as close as possible to the lions. By doing this, Kevin hopes to give people an insight into the lives of these beautiful creatures and to let them see just what they can do to help. You can nearly touch them.


big moe Cosmo : Kevin Richardson = definition of a real man; strong, kind, compassionate, intelligent, respectful, and a love for wildlife and nature. He's an inspiration to humanity and an invaluable teacher. One can only aspire to be as great a human as he is. And for the personnel working with him, they are to be commended for what they do. It doesn't look easy and I'd have to say they are, also, committed to supporting his philosophy which makes them great human beings as well. We as custodians of the Earth can and should do no less. God bless them all.

Killatunga : Man, there's a lotta work you guys have to do, so hats off!

TessieTelevision : Great video. Nice to see the goings on behind the scenes.πŸ’œπŸ‘πŸ¦

Katherine Uribe : George and Yame are true success stories, especially poor Georgie who had so many issues that he required surgery. But look at them now! Two of the most handsome and healthy young lions you could ever hope to see! George will always carry the scars of his maltreatment in the form of some deformity to his rear legs, but he really doesn't let that slow him down! He runs, jumps, and plays with Yame! And they are two of the sweetest lions in the sanctuary! Bless you, Kevin & The Lion Whisperer Team for all you've done for them, for all of the animals at the sanctuary, for spreading the word about canned hunting and the plight of wild lions! πŸ‘πŸ€ πŸ’–πŸ¦πŸ’–

quiet harmony : My heart breaks when I think of what mankind has done to these beautiful creatures in the interest of greed and getting β€œtrophies”. Thank God for people like Kevin who educate us about the plight of these often abused and misunderstood animals. You are a WARRIOR for those without words Kevin!

Nuckin Futs : They are such incredibly beautiful creatures. I'm truly baffled at how anyone can aim a weapon at them and fire. Sending much love and appreciation from the U.S. to Kevin and his entire team. Thank you all. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’œπŸ¦πŸ†πŸΎ *Poach the poachers*

Nate dawg : I like the "poach the poachers" shirt. These canned hunting organisers need to be rounded up and released into an enclosed area and hunted down just like they do to the lions. I am past being angry at the rich cowardly people that pay to kill them. It is down to the people that provide the trophy hunting service/experience that need to be stopped. If you really want a lion's head for a trophy then go out into the wild bush yourself and fight one with what you were born with (no weapons) to make it fair and see how well you do!! I am not a fan of gore but i would be satisfied to see a poacher or canned hunter meet his deserved demise to the animal that he/she tried to kill.

Kindness is Beauty : Kevins Lions look so clean! Compared to other lions we see in wild.

The Artoholic : I have now found my inner appreciation for Lions. They're so cute πŸ’œπŸ¦
