ADOPT A LION

Lions, considered the king of the jungle, are formidable hunters and the largest big cat in Africa.  Lions are the only large cats that live and hunt in groups (called prides). 

Sadly, wild lion populations face a risk of extinction from numerous threats including habitat loss due to encroachment by humans. 

With it still deemed legal in some countries to shoot lions for 'sport', these big cats remain a target for trophy hunters.

Lions also suffer in captivity with Born Free's big cat santuaries now home to numerous lions rescued from terrible conditions.

 

WHAT'S INCLUDED

Help care for a wild animal and you'll receive an exclusive adoption pack containing a soft toy, animal story, species fact sheet, certificate and glossy photo.  Plus, you'll also receive our Adopt magazine twice a year with updates on all our wildlife adoptions – perfect for animal lovers.

 

YOUR ADOPTION WILL HAVE A MASSIVE IMPACT

Funds from your adoption will help care for rescued lions at our big cat santuaries in Africa and also support conservation efforts to protect wild lion populations.  You can make a difference to a wild animal by adopting one of our lions below.

 

KING

King was rescued from an apartment in Paris where he was being kept illegally as an ‘exotic pet’ in a small, dirty cage. He now lives at our big cat sanctuary in South Africa.

 

DOLO

Emaciated and lonely, Dolo was kept on a one metre chain in a wooden shack, his mane had been rubbed away. Today Dolo shares a bush enclosure with Safia the lioness.

 

SINBAD & ACHEE

Sinbad was rescued from a cramped and rusty cage in a Romanian zoo. Today he lives in South Africa with Achee, a lioness rescued from a snowy car park. 

 

ELSA'S PRIDE

Where it all began for Born Free.  This pride still resides in Meru National Park today. With your support we can protect them for future generations.

 

Your support is changing the lives of threatened animals around the world.  Our work would not be possible without you!
