#AnimalRightsInTourism – Blood Lions has brought the horrors of predator breeding, canned hunting and a variety of other exploitative activities using lions and other species to the world’s attention in a way that has not been achieved before. While so many others have been involved in different ways over the last decade and more, and their contributions have been and will continue to be meaningful and significant, the films powerful visual narrative as well as the global campaign have provided a compelling call to action to have these practices stopped.
With support from the wider conservation community and the global tourism industry as well as millions of concerned citizens, the Blood Lions campaign is now owned by everyone that supports an end to the breeding, canned hunting and commercial exploitation.
For those not yet committed, we ask that you consider doing so. By committing to the pledge you will also be making a clear statement that:
a) lions and other predators are wild species and we wish to continue promoting Africa as an authentic, wild and rewarding tourism destination and,
b) we wish to continue our support and promotion of the formal conservation community in their endeavours to secure the survival of Africa’s predators in the wild.
This pledge has become a central part of what we are all trying to achieve, and this page recognizes those safari and tourism operators that have committed to actively becoming involved in being part of the solution. Blood Lions and those that have already signed up ask that you join in good faith. The industry will be its own watchdog. I invite all tourism operators to join us in committing to these pledges. To do so, please click on link below – http://www.bloodlions.org/born-to-live-wild/ and spread the good word.
