A bond of love

This is the moment ex-circus lion Leo, still groggy from anaesthetic after dental surgery, battles to reach his daughter Africa – showing the close family bonds in our lion prides. Right now, a mesh divide separates Leo, his mate Muñeca, and daughters Kiara and Africa, as they reaffirm family bonds, get used to their new habitat and we sterilise the females, ready to enter their HUGE natural enclosure in the African bush.

HELP US BUILD THE FAMILY HOME THIS BEAUTIFUL FAMILY DESERVES.

PS: After just a few minutes resting by Africa, Leo was back on his feet and back to his old self!
