“Lions can sometimes give you a certain look when you’re out with them. We call it ‘the naughty look.’ They focus on you intensely, ears back, pupils narrowed. It’s difficult to describe what that look is, exactly; but believe me, you’ll know it if you get it."

The time has come to end the begin. Packed (hopefully), ready (mostly), excited (definitely!) - we're off to the airport and on towards another country on another continent in a different hemisphere to begin an adventure that will take us halfway around the world and back, literally.

Dambwa Pride released!
Recently, CNN-GO published a list of eight worldwide travel destinations for people looking to get more out of their vacations than a few pictures and a suntan, and we were delighted to see that among the animal volunteer opportunities listed was ALERT's Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, Lion Rehabilitation and Release Program.
We were surprised and very happy to hear the news this weekend that ALERT is gearing up to release their second pride into a purpose-built enclosure at their Livingstone, Zambia, location.
September 1st will mark the one year anniversary of the release of the Ngamo Pride.
