Lion World Travel Projects
Our goal is to reach 20,000 shares for a total of $10,000 to be donated to the Trust.Conservation based tourism is very close to our hearts and bringing visitors on safari to witness the true miracle of nature in Africa is an integral part of what we do. The safari and tourism industry has an obligation to lend their support to wildlife conservation and protection especially in view of the current crisis in animal poaching which has reached unprecedented levels in recent years! Tourism is perhaps one of the most powerful tools against poaching bringing with it funds in the form of tourism dollars and increased insight and awareness across the globe.
At Lion World Travel we are haunted by the plight of the rhino. While ten years ago, a mere 25 rhinos were poached, the number poached in South Africa in 2013 reached an unbelievable 1004!In conjunction with the Treadright Foundation, a not-for-profit organization established by The Travel Corporation to encourage sustainable tourism within our own family of brands, and in the places we visit, we have chosen to support The Endangered Wildlife Trust’s Rhino Project to contribute to the cause in our own small way and now you can be a part of this too! Please share this page and encourage others to do the same.
