About this Gathering
High Level Panel
In October last year a High Level Panel was appointed by the South African Government in order to review Policies, Legislation and Practices on Matters Related to the Management, Breeding, Hunting, Trade and Handling of Elephant, Lion, Leopard and Rhinoceros.
Submissions by concerned stake-holders were called for. The Global White Lion Trust submitted a document specifically speaking for the lions.
EMS Foundation, and Animal Law Reform, submitted a separate document which was endorsed by all members of the Wildlife Animal Protection Forum South Africa, of which Animaltalk Africa and White Lion Trust are part of.

About Linda Tucker
CEO and Founder of the Global White Lion Protection Trust
Linda founded the Global White Lion Protection Trust, a leader in community-based conservation, after nearly 10 years of intensive research on both the cultural and conservation importance of the White Lions in this region.
Over the past 2 decades, this Non Profit Organisation has established a strong track record of creating mutual benefits for Lions, Land, and People in one of the world’s most important wildlife areas: the UN-designated Kruger to Canyons Biosphere.
In 2000, together with her partner lion ecologist, Jason A. Turner, and a team of specialists, Linda Tucker was responsible for returning White Lions back to their natural endemic habitat, after decades of forced removals from their natural system had rendered them virtually extinct. Since this time, her organization has been implementing a multi-level strategy which includes the White Lion Protection Plan™, a carefully monitored scientific reintroduction program of White Lions and the protection of the cultural heritage of the Sepedi and Tsonga peoples who honour the White Lions as sacred.
Linda Tucker lives with Jason Turner in the White Lion’s ancestral Heartlands, in the epicenter of the Kruger-to-Canyons wilderness region. Together they are guardians of the land occupied by the White Lion prides they rescued and successfully re-wilded in their ground-breaking scientific reintroduction project. They are ably assisted by the Global White Lion Protection Trust’s dedicated team of over 40 permanent personnel.
