Yesterday morning we went to introduce Omar and Mahli. Omar needed some encouragement to step through the gate.
There was one moment when Mahli claimed back her space a little, but Omar reacted as a real gentleman en lay down a couple of meters from her. After 10 minutes or so Mahli lay down right next to him in the shade. This was a brillliant moment. Omar is really being a gentleman and Mahli is very confident in the situation! 💪🏼

Today Omar did not hesitate and walked straight up to Mahli. He lay down just outside her feeding area, where she was sleeping, to be able to look at her and be close to her.

We couldn’t be more proud! 🤩

Happy World Wildlife Day! 🦁

Let’s start with a lesson about the African Lion’s role in the ecosystem.

- Population Control
Lions play a key role in the food chain by helping to control the herbivore population. If the herbivore population is not regulated, the increase of competition among them would cause some to go extinct and thus reduce biodiversity. The lions have a reputation of being the ‘chief’ predator of their habitat as they are known to even kill large herbivores such as elephants and giraffes.

- Disease Control
Lions prey mainly on herd animals. Nature comes to play as lions take down the weakest of the herd. This keeps the herd population resilient and healthy. If lions did not exist, there would be a symbiotic relationship between parasites and herd animals. This way, parasites could increase and spread throughout the herd, resulting in fewer healthy animals.
Smaller Carnivores
Where predators like lions do not exist, smaller carnivores tend to increase. Smaller carnivores such as olive baboons will reproduce more and cause complications for farmers by destroying their crops and livestock, and spreading diseases.

A special thank you to LeoVegas Group for the extra donation on this special day!
