I am African, always will be. My work has afforded me the opportunity to travel the world catering to Elite athletes, Olympians, Royal Navy, Royalty and Aristocracy. I have been fortunate to experience all I have. I had a right to the freedom. My unfailing support for PAL is driven by the right of the great African Lion to survive, the right for them to be protected and for us to educate humanity to demand rights for these truly magnificent animals. #CecilsLaw campaign to ban trophy hunting worldwide.

The LION is much more than an element of the environment, it is a symbol of strength for nations around the globe. We must unite to protect these magnificent creatures that have blessed our earth with so much beauty and power. It is my honor to serve as an ambassador for PAL and work as one to conserve their future.
Founder, Colin Cowie Enterprises
I am a huge supporter of PAL – these magnificent animals need us to take care of them in a world that no longer cares. If we come together in conservation we can guarantee that these animals will survive and our children will get to enjoy them in an environment where they can thrive.

The lion is our most majestic animal but has become a vulnerable Species. Having seen a shocking population decline of 30–50% over the Past two decades in its African range. Habitat loss and conflicts with Humans are the greatest causes of concern. Please stand with us in Supporting this extraordinary animal and this wonderful foundation which serves to protect it.

I have lived in South Africa my entire life where I have been privileged with the African bushveld right on my doorstep. This African bushveld holds the hearts of many majestic animals that never cease to fascinate me and in particular the powerful lion. In a world where mankind ignorantly abuses the planet and its creatures, I felt compelled to do something to protect the African lions.
Founder, Mara Group & Mara Foundation
I am very proud to have Mara Foundation, and our Mara Lion, support the Protecting African Lions campaign. Africa’s lions are running out of habitat and, as a consequence, this magnificent species faces imminent danger of extinction. Growing up in Africa, this cause is particularly important to me and I’m confident that this campaign will make a difference in providing an environment in which our African Lions can thrive…
Singh is derived from the Sanskrit word Simha/Sinha meaning Lion. As a fellow Sikh, our communities look to form cohesion with the courage and strength of a Lion. This majestic animal represents sheer power, loyalty and pride; these are key qualities we all aspire to and need to keep alive for our future generations. The population of the African Lion has already declined by over 50%. We must all unite in common purpose to preserve such an inspiring and irreplacable member of our cultures and societies.
Having spent the last 25 years working as a photojournalist I occasionally encounter a scenario which seems inconceivable.
The fact that a species as iconic worldwide as the African Lion faces, at its present rate of decline, extinction in the wild seems barely credible.
However, a 90 percent decline in the last 50 years can only point in one direction.
PAL is not prepared to let this happen and with all our help we can halt and reverse this tragic situation.

Many of us often see community development and conservation as mutually exclusive–that, in breaking cycles of poverty, people disregard the environmental consequences of their actions. True sustainable development, however, creates a balance between the two. The future of tomorrow’s children is inextricably bound to their natural surroundings. PAL, then, is essential to the continent’s growth.

We are struggling to protect our rhinos because we acted too late, surely we must now have the foresight to not make the same mistake with our lions…
The African Lion, a universal symbol of strength and pride, is an irreplaceable member of our planet. Its very existence, however, is in jeopardy. If we don’t take action now, it would be a great disservice to future generations. I strongly support PAL in their fight to preserve the integrity and majesty of the African jungle by protecting its king.
Executive Director, Africa Progress Panel
Ask anyone to name animals that symbolize Africa. I bet that lions will top their list – and with reason. Lions are majestic, proud and incredibly beautiful. As a child, I was hypnotized every time I saw one. As a mother of three little girls, I want to do what I can to ensure that our children all have the same privilege. That is why I am a huge supporter of Protecting Africa’s Lions.
Founder, Africa Rising
The Lion has always been a symbol of Pride, Power and Authority. That is why it is important for us, especially as Africans, to make sure that we do what we can to protect our lions.
& Thought Leader
The lion is the pride of Africa, it imparts inspiration and a sense of awe. It is a touchstone that exists outside of ourselves; something that we can aspire to, something extraordinary that empowers confidence and supernatural belief. Africa without the lion would be just another place…
Ex Springbok Rugby Captain
As we get caught up in the rat race of our daily lives, we tend to forget the beauty and serenity mother nature offers to regain our peace and awaken our inspiration. Being environmentally conscious is not a choice we make; It is our responsibility! As a South African, I have the privilege of living close to nature, and I shall always stand in awe of the power, courage and ability of this magnificent animal – the lion. We should all be held responsible for savoring and protecting our wildlife.
I was born in the Moldova, however throughout my life I have been fascinated by the king of the jungle, as a model I have travelled all over the world and I have taking the spirit of the lion with me to achieve my goals. To me the Lion is Known for courage and strength. This animal deserves to be supported and protected because it is such a vital animal and symbolic piece of Africa. We must unite to protect these magnificent creatures, That is why I am a huge supporter of PAL.
Grammy Nominated Director & Wildlife/Fashion
The only reason I have gotten to where I am today is because of a picture I took of a Lioness, it changed everything. Seeing their power and serenity gives you a new perspective, there is nothing more beautiful. To think that future generations won’t be
able to encounter such incredible beings is unacceptable. Everyone is responsible for keeping the beauty and nature left in the world, without it we are nothing.
Lions are nations’ symbol of courage, strength and independence. They once roamed most of Africa and parts of Asia and Europe, but the population has decreased heavily and they are now only found in rare parts in sub-Saharan Africa. Their majesty is unquestioned and they are part of who we are today. We need to protect our heritage and need to respect what was created and given to us on this earth.
Singer & Songwriter
Our African Lions are just one of the species around the world that are in danger of befalling a terrible fate at the hands of humans in their selfish and short sighted quest for self actualization and fulfillment. Should we continue on this path of distraction, mankind will be the real losers. I am proud to join the PAL family and lend my voice to highlighting the plight of the African lion and educating people around the world.
Wildlife Conservation Activist
Africa’s lions are constantly facing their greatest nemesis: mankind. Habitat destruction, trophy hunting and demand for lion products are the core issues that threaten the future existence of lions, the pride of African wildlife. It is time for the modern day hunter to lay down his gun and join the international quest to protect this magnificent species.

We have all been witness to the effect of humankind. However, “we” are all connected and inequality (in any form) is the root of imbalance in our world. This imbalance is linked to every aspect of our lives having devastating outcomes for the natural order, as one of its consequences. To save the LION we need to save ourselves and in doing so, we will gain extraordinary flight and freedom for all kinds.
Psychologist, Serial Entrepreneur & Thought Leader
Grandiose creatures. Lions enthrall and embody the essence of power. Human expansion has lead to a rapid decline in the global lion population. We can provide meaning and purpose to life through the creation of value. Taking accountability for the perpetuation of our planet, for future generations, manifests true value.
Model, Entrepreneur, activist
Throughout global cultures, both modern and ancient, the lion has been considered to be the “king of the beasts”. As a spirit animal, he signifies the ability to lead others with strength and valour. Despite our love for this cat, it’s existence is in danger. It is our responsibility to help protect this creature and create sustainable awareness and take action to preserve it’s right to survive.

I spent a lot of time together with Gregory Colbert, working for the Russian project “Ashes and Snow” , trying to explore new stories for nature that can help change our view of nature and its inhabitants. People have become so focused on material wealth, and forgot that intangible wealth was equally important. I will work for the salvation and preservation of the African lion. I am part of the biosphere and the lion is my brother.
