Tourism dollars working for conservation

Tourism dollars working for conservation 
Before he was tragically killed in 1989, George Adamson famously wrote:
"Who will now care for the animals, for they cannot look after themselves? Are there young men and women who are willing to take on this charge? Who will raise their voices, when mine is carried away on the wind, to plead their case?"
Undoubtedly, the threat to Lions has increased in the intermediary years since George died and (sadly) wild Lion populations across Africa have fallen dramatically, primarily due to habitat loss.
But where there is life there is hope, which is why we are developing fresh wildlife education projects. Not just education for the sake of it but a study into what is the most effective way of offering wildlife conservation education to local communities.
