HELP TO END CUB PETTING AND CANNED HUNTING

ABOUT ME

My story began with my passion for big cats which led me to book what I believed would be the trip of a lifetime – two weeks volunteering with lion cubs in South Africa. Unaware of the atrocities within this industry, I arrived at my destination where I was faced with the harsh reality regarding the barbaric treatment of lions throughout the country.

Through my experience I learnt that in South Africa, thousands of lion cubs are raised in captivity to die in captivity; either through canned hunting or for the lion bone trade. Returning to the UK I was committed to raising awareness through my experience, starting with my online blog, Claws Out where I aimed to educate potential volunteers about the ‘con’ within these conservation parks.
