Themba by solariahues Themba by solariahues
Themba; Male African White Lion
Wildlife Heritage Foundation Big Cat Sanctuary [link]

You can see a video of Themba here [link]
Info vid on the sanctuary [link]

One of many photos I took on an open day visit to the sanctuary. Plenty more to come!

When I was blogging about raising money to get two females brought in, it was for this guy. WHF is aiming to breed them to eventually, probably a few generations down the line, release White Lions back into the wild increasing the wild population.

What a handsome boy. I love the tuft of his mane on the top of his head.

Sure is! The WHF are working hard to increase populations, not just of Lions but other big cats too. And I'm trying to help as much as I can. :) Hopefully my photos will be linked to and that will help spread the word too. Thank you :thanks:
