Wildlife volunteering – conservation or CON? Blood Lions®

Wildlife volunteering – conservation or CON? Blood Lions®



it was always been a dream to me to work with animals and I was a bit fed up of my life behind a computer the International paying volunteer industry has grown phenomenally there are some very genuine projects where volunteers pay they come they get involved in very genuine conservation projects but unfortunately it's an industry that's grown way out of control you think you're going in conservation and you're going to make a difference most of these forms are not in conservation it's actually for the high-end lion hunting and breeding and these students are in many cases being absolutely ripped off they're told that they're rearing this poor little orphaned lion cub and that is going to go back into the wild meanwhile they're part of a very brutal commercial system where they are paying to actually really comfort is going back into a candle island situation I can remember an occasion where there were two big beautiful adult males taken out there gorgeous Mane's and there was absolutely nothing said about though where they were going it was just okay they've left the building never to be seen or heard of again I don't want to say the name of the place because I had a really bad experience down there I was most of the time scared people are yelling you cry every second day because they threatening you we've had quite a few complaints some volunteers that were brought to the country and what was told to them on the other side in what actually happened here is two completely different things for 30 days you pay me it was two thousand eight hundred US dollars they were downs up to thirty five volunteers at the stage and there's not a lot of work for all of these volunteers to be going to alliance forum or allowing conservation century and you see like all these hundreds of lions together that's not conservation and especially we made love twelve or fourteen males in one camp that's not conservation because in in the wall this isn't even like one two or three males in a fight what do you think that is for any volunteer looking to come and work in this country or to pay to come into one of these projects they really need to look and see how is it possible for there to be so many lion cubs available they need to question a lot more before they get involved and I would love to see us going away from the paying volunteer system I mean volunteer is you donate your services because you believe in the cause and you want to do something good you shouldn't have to pay to do something good this hand-rearing and pitting of animals is it shouldn't be happening because you're imprinting that animal how are you going to release I mean conservation is wild life outside day I think it's a call

  1. Con, please people don't do this. These sweet adorable cubs will be used for trophy hunting and lion bone trading when they get old. 💔💔😔

  2. Sick sick sick!!! Name and shame these facilities so they can be shut down. People never ever visit these places, do NOT take your children there.

  3. THESE CUBS LOOK FILTHY, POOR FEEDING THEY ARE DESPERATE TO BE RELEASED AWAY FROM THE TRAUMA OF THEIR CAPTIVITY. THIS IS ANIMAL ABUSE. CLOSE THESE BREEDING FARMS DOWN

  4. i AGREE, IS JON WATSON PROMOTING THESE VOLUNTEER PROGRAMS? I KNOW HE STATED THAT HE LEFT A COUPLE OF VOLUNTEER PROGRAMS DUE TO THEIR CONTRIBUTION TO," CANNED HUNTING". WHO IS MONITORING THESE PROGRAMS? LET VOLUNTEERS KNOW WHO THEY CAN CONTACT.

  5. Chris Mercer Canned hunting is a fast-growing business in South Africa, where thousands of lions are being bred on farms to be shot by wealthy foreign trophy-hunters Volunteer Programs South Africa contribute to this industry by providing "Petting Lion Cubs"", "Walking with Lions" ultimately the grown lion is then sent to Canned Hunting Farms to be shot for sport and trophy if we can educate volunteers to avoid supporting lion farmers posing as ‘wildlife sanctuaries’ then we can close this dreadful

  6. The Volunteer South Africa farm owners breed the cubs for the bullet,” , Pippa Hankinson, who has been involved in a campaign to stop canned hunting for five years following a 20-year career in high-end eco-tourism. “The cubs are taken from their mothers when they’re a week old and are bred in captivity for three years, until they’re sold to hunters. A huge tourism industry has been developed around this.” This is not conservation this breeding for the ultimate kill sport for Trophy Hunters

  7. I live in South Africa. My mother is an animal lover and we (our family) are not allowed to go to the famous Lion Park and all that stuff that's here. We, of course, don't hunt and we are donating to rhinoceros conservation, elephants, lions , etc. (we also lived in Kenya).
    And I have a friend that already went to the Lions Park and is planning to take their friends visiting them there. So I told her what I heard from that park but really believes that the cubs are left by their mother and that the lions there are not used for hunts.
    Please tell me how to proove her wrong.
    I know I can't force her not to go. But we don't NEED to pet cubs. If you really like animals that much you could donate without wanting to tuch lions in a park full of lies.

  8. Expose these Volunteer Programs for what they are Breeding Farms to send to Death Camps, Killing Fields for Trophy Hunters. These animals will not survive in the wild. This is not Conservation it is Death to these animals.

  9. Living with Lions Volunteer Volunteer were breeding lion cubs into adults lions to be used ultimately used for Trophy Hunting and Canned Hunting Please close Volunteering Programs audit their Conservation Program. They are shot not released to the wild. They can't hunt or survive so they are ultimately killed for a price.

  10. How can the Africans allow people to take their animals and manipulate such magnificent creatures.
    That guy caning the lion should be fed to it @ around 1:33
