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.
After a busy morning stalking their territory's indigenous prey species - namely, humans - the K+C Pride's combined hunting efforts paid off and they were rewarded with a breakfast of wet food (chicken and lobster, not human). Afterwards, Lucy, Leo, and Sal retired to a favorite outcrop for a much deserved nap.
Call me Indiana Jones, but I do not like snakes. Spiders, other reptiles, and all other assortment of creepy crawlies that others hold in similar high regard to the snake heebie-jeebies, no problem. But snakes, not in the least.
A selection of what's been whetting our reading appetites these past few months.
From 450,000 lions in the 1940s to 23,000 today. Sobering to describe what's in that number.
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.
