I've been asked a lot recently about the recent tragic incident where a lady lost her life from a lion attacking through an open window.
A lot of you have been asking how Bongani's been doing after his tooth surgery, so we thought we would update you all! Check out this video for some info on Bogani's recovery and how the group are doing.
An unnecessary event at the sanctuary made the entire team work restless for hours. A fire which has started from people burning rubbish - luckily no one was hurt and all animals in the sanctuary were saved.
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.
This week I take Vayetse, Livy and Ginny out for a beautiful walk whilst answering some of your questions! Do the lions understand their own name? Are lions inherently mean? These questions will be answered, along with a clip of Ginny being her clumsy self!

Meet George and Yame! The cubs Kevin helped rescue from Spain. Although Kevin and Jade are interacting with the cubs it's for their well being and rehabilitation. Kevin is against cub petting as lions are NOT pets and belong in the wild.
Ever wondered how long a hyena can run? How much they can eat? Whether they're smart or even whether they actually DO laugh? Check out this video where I share some facts about hyenas and their habits! Expect some adorable hyena footage too!
