PLEASE ACT NOW! HELP SPARE THE LIFE OF WHITE LIONESS NYANGA!
2 years ago
| VALLEE'S PETITIONS/NEWS

 

 

Dear Friends:  Mid-February of this year a fatal accident occurred at a zoo 120 km outside of Johannesburg, South Africa. Someone left the gate of white lioness "Nyanga" unhinged. Nyanga's entire life had been spent at the zoo living behind bars for the sake of human entertainment. The morning of the "error" she lunged at her zoo-keeper during feeding time and did what all natural predators do when they are taken by surprise:  she struck at his throat and killed him.
Nayanga knew her zoo attendant; he had fed her for most of her life. But now her life hangs in the balance, all because of a fatal human error. A prisoner for decades, Nyanga stands to be euthanized because of human folly. The Johannesburg city council has stayed close-mouthed on what will happen to Nyanga for the last two months and has yet to deliver a verdict on what they will do with her. The White Lion Trust of South Africa has demanded transparency on the subject of Nyanga and her fate as she is an endangered and protected species, but they have yet to respond.
She has been offered sanctuary by the White Lion Trust of South Africa where she can roam freely and live a life of dignity. YOU CAN HELP SEND HER THERE!
First, please sign the petition below and lend your voice to the global outcry to spare her life. Second, please note the link below it and take direct, immediate action. The link doesn't take you directly to the page for Nyanga; you have to go to "home" then "campaign to save a white lioness life-add your voice" for the email contacts. I have provided them below to make it easier for you. South Africa is home to some of the most magnificent big cats on earth, many of which are bred and killed for "trophies," others hunted in the wild by poachers or captured and placed in zoos. We must fight for the life of Nyanga and ALL big cats in Africa who so desperately need our voice!
TY! Michelle
