Not sure when last you were at the Waterfront, but whilst there last week I was really excited to see the Pride of Cape Town display and returned to take a few pics. As part of a public arts event, thirty life-size lion sculptures are prowling the Waterfront, each designed and painted by a local artists to depict our heritage, architecture and art scene. This 8 week event is in aid of international wildlife charity, the Born Free FoundationLion numbers have dramatically dropped due mostly to their loss of habitat and trophy-hunting and Born Free say that there  are only 25000 left across the continent. These lions are well worth seeking out and seeing, and the awareness that Africa’s ‘King of the Jungle’ needs our help, is not to go by unnoticed.
