I would like to thank everyone who has donated to the lion relocation so far but unfortunately we are still way off our target of $28000. If we do not raise these funds then the lions will have to stay here for winter while we continue to try and raise the necessary funds.
Keeping them here justs adds to the overall costs becasue we need t feed and we will then also need to build warm heat winter shelters for them which will then decimate the funds already raised. Its critical we try ot move them by end of September/ 1st week of October.
Apart from the funding we are just waiting on CITES export premits which have been delayed becasue Luke was part of the court confiscation but all is cleared now and we can proceed with the process of getting all the documentation together.
Attached is a photo of DIYA looking out her night shelter and the other pic is them both inside their night shelter.
