Bottle-Feed Orphaned Lion Cubs in Zambia

In 1972, when Living Free—the sequel to the influential, Oscar-winning 1966 movie Born Free—was released, more than 200,000 lions roamed the African continent. Between feline tuberculosis, poaching, and diminishing habitat, that number today has dwindled to fewer than 15,000. If something isn’t done soon, this icon of Africa could well be extinct. That’s why Amanzi Travel, a British-based travel company, offers volunteers the chance to work with, and hopefully save the “king of beasts.”
