Johan and I could not be more excited to finally be traveling to South Africa for the inauguration of the Lööf Foundation Lion Lagoon enclosure and to visit our Star for Life school that Lööf Foundation supports! Johan is especially looking forward to meeting the six lions for the first time that Andi Rives has in her sanctuary now. Andi, better known as the “Lion Queen” from her documentary on Animal Planet founded and runs the Love Lions Alive Project. The project is aimed to protect, save and create a sanctuary for lions, as their population is decreasing at a rapid rate in South Africa due to hunting.
Lööf Foundation has supported Andi’s work by sponsoring a lion enclosure on her farm that is two hectares large with electric fences generated by solar panels. The Lööf Foundation Lion Lagoon enclosure has rocks, trees for shade, running water and will be home for two lions Mendla and Sibindi. Two young brothers, where was one was saved from a shoot and drop, while the other was saved from being bred for hunting. I cannot wait to see the two lions finally get settled into their new home!
