In June, my wife Helen and I are climbing Mount Kilimanjaro on a private climb to raise funds for African Lion and Environmental Research Trust (ALERT). We discovered this amazing lion conservation project while volunteering at Antelope Park, Zimbabwe during 2010 and returned in 2011.
Unless we act now, we could lose the king of beasts forever. With the African lion population falling by an estimated 80 to 90% in less than 40 years, the continuation of ALERT’s work towards the conservation of this iconic species is vital. The Ngamo release pride at Antelope Park, Zimbabwe now has five second-generation cubs that will one day be released into the wild. These lion cubs are living proof that ALERT’s approach is working but, as a charity organisation, without further funding they simply cannot continue to make progress.
Your donation - however small - will make a big difference and will go 100% directly to ALERT’s work, as the climb is self-funded.
