They walked and walked and walked. And then they walked some more. This is how Marnus Roodbol and Charmaine Joubert raised awareness for the plight of lions in Africa.

Roodbol, founder of the non-profit organisation Walking for Lions, and Joubert, a media liaison officer, walked 530km from Windhoek in Namibia, to Ghanzi in Botswana over two weeks last month.

They walked in an effort to “give back to the lions”.

“Our slogan is, ‘Don’t talk, just walk’. People are quick to talk, but they often do not go over to action,” Roodbol said about their campaign.

I agree Lynn, a lot of people are all just talk and no action!

I wish there was a walk around here for something. Even with a messed-up ankle I can walk a fur piece.
