Founding of The Lions Foundation
Recently Stichting Leeuw had the unique opportunity to realise its own lion sanctuary in South Africa. This subsidiary, which will have the internationally more workable name of The Lions Foundation, is located in the nature reserve Schrikkloof in Limpopo province. This foundation will keep close ties with Stichting Leeuw in Anna Paulowna. Together we will be able to be even more active in realising our most important objective: rehabilitating sheltered lions to their original habitat and create room in The Netherlands for other big cats in need.

Geweldige plek voor deze dieren! Petje af! Ik hoop daar eens heen te kunnen gaan. Top! 🙏
Afgelopen woensdag bij Stichting Leeuw in Anna Paulowna geweest. Wat een geweldig Park is dat. Zo natuurlijk en heerlijk om de hele dag te zijn.
I am SO HAPPY that you are out there in South Africa now. Nero and Masrya are my all-time favorite lions. You should run their story more often on Youtube, etc. People are moved by that story like I was. They must be getting pretty old by now, but I hope that they have what they need to live without fear and want.
