800 Voices for 800 Lions

– World Lion Day –

Did you know  that South Africa legally exports 800 lion skeletons every year?

This World Lion Day, Blood Lions and World Animal Protection have partnered to mobilise supporters and put pressure on the South African Government to set a zero CITES lion bone export quota.
We want to inspire YOU to raise YOUR voice for lions by creating your very own LION ART, whether this is drawing, painting, photography, music, poetry or dance – anything goes.
We are aiming for at least 800 pieces of art, representing the quota of 800 lion skeletons South Africa exported every year for use in traditional medicine that have no proven curative benefits.
It is our goal to submit these 800 pieces of lion art to Minister Barbara Creecy in the lead up to the G20 Summit and urge them to decide against a continuation of the legal trade in big cat bones and body parts.

You have until Friday, 23 October 2020 to submit your Lion Art for this campaign.
