The truly wild animals that are attempting to co-habitate with humans on our Earth, the struggles they face as human populations continue to expand into what was their homes are facing major issues. Their worlds are shrinking, their hunting land is vanishing, and many are hunted to extinction or near-extinction. We humans and our influences are affecting much more than we can perhaps imagine.
I would like to focus today on the big cats, but mostly the lion because there is a new movie out this month called, "The Last Lions" that is being put out by National Geographic and is a true story of a mother lion struggling to care for her two lion cubs alone. The film was taped over a period of six years and promises to be a very interesting and moving adventure! See the trailer below to help the lions!
And a little something for you:
Head on over to enter the Sweepstakes brought to you by Botswana Tourism that is bringing a lucky winner to Botswana, where "The Last Lions" was actually recorded for a 12 day private safari, airfare both ways, all hotel accommodations, and travel within Africa! You can enter this sweepstakes once per day until the end of March, 2011. GOOD LUCK!
