These gorgeous handmade lions are a beautiful way to show your support for the conservation of big cats in Africa. Produced by the African Cat Project, an Australian non-profit organisation dedicated to conserving Africa’s three great cats – lion, leopard and cheetah, proceeds from the sale of these lions goes to support the foundation. Due to their hand made nature, these are ornamental toys only and not suitable for very young children.
Sizes (approx): Large: 23cm, Small: 17cm tall
HOW THEY ARE MADE
Made by an artisan group of women in South Africa who would otherwise have no income, and with all profits going to their projects, these lions couldn't be more ethical!! Lovingly hand made so no two are ever the same, the lions are created with a natural linen fabric and hand stitched. Sarah Menzies has loved and supported cats all her life. She founded African Cat Project (previously called The Feline Foundation) in 2011 as a way to do something more for cats in need, both big and small. African Cat Project has since evolved to focus solely on big cat conservation in Africa – something Sarah is extremely passionate about as lion, leopard and cheetah numbers continue to decline in the wild. Their projects focus on reducing human-wildlife conflict which is one of the biggest issues facing big cats in Africa. Sarah is from Sydney and shares her home with her husband, her three cats, Bosco, Oliver and Duma, and her dog Dexter. Sarah travels to Africa, her spiritual home, as often as she can.
