2020 didn't go as planned for many people. Unfortunately for us specifically it meant that our center had to close down in March 2020 causing a huge loss of income and therefore affecting our plans for the year.

We had a group of students booked for May and June this year, part of their mission here on our farm was to build a brand new hospital with added on camps. The lion camp was included in this plan. Unfortunately Covid19 happened, the group and most of the funding that would have came with was canceled. We had been looking forward to these new camps so the disappointment is huge.

Our 3 lions are really in need of a bigger camp with added platforms and night quarters. Halo is our older lioness (she is 13 years old) who is not able to live in the same camp as the others because of health issues, the new camp will allow her to have contact with Bliss and Thunder (4 and 2 years old) even though she is not physically in the same camp.

All 3 lions joined us out of uncertain circumstances and would not have had a future if we didn't take them in. Halo was injured a few years back while playing with Bliss and recovered from paralysis from the shoulders down. She is able to walk again and has made a remarkable recovery, we would love for her to be able to live in an adjoining camp so she can play with Bliss without the risk of getting hurt.

The new camp will be build so we can add platforms and other enrichment areas in a way that is safe for the lions and the staff to use. The camp currently housing Bliss and Thunder was build for Halo when she first moved here in 2009 and is not ideal to house 2 active youngsters like Bliss and Thunder.

Moving the lions into their new camp will free up Bliss and Thunders camp to be used for our growing cheetahs and will free up Halos camp to be used as a much needed hospital camp to be on standby for any sick animals needing extra care overnight.

Lions are meant to live in prides, help us to get our little pride together instead of living separated into 2 areas as they are now.

  • Hi Kim! I hope everything has been going alright through the lockdown. I wish I could've come back this summer! I had also planned on donating the money that I intended on using to come, but unfortunately, I was put out of work due to the pandemic. I am just starting to work again so I would love to contribute to a new home for Halo, Blissy, and Thunder! By the way, I watched the video you made on Halo, it was very well done and very emotionally strong. I hope everyone there (all the people and all the animals) are doing good and I hope to come back and see you guys when that's possible again!
