UNITED KINGDOM

The UK  has 5 cities that are marching in support of Africa’s lions – London, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Sheffield and Liverpool. Our goal is to have a White Lion representation at each march to show our support and unity for this cause. In order to show our unity and support for the marches we will identify ourselves with White Lion Tshirts.
If you haven’t already decided to join one of the marches on the 15th PLEASE consider making your voice, your ROAR and your feet count – This is your chance to make a difference for lions and ultimately ALL wildlife.
 
If you’d like to join one of the 5 marches in the UK please contact Tracey who is co-ordinating the White Lion’s support for the marches in the UK.
