There's only 24 hours left to save these 16 lions!

I wish this was an Aprils Fools joke, but it isn't. Unfortunately the caring people at SanWild have run out of funding and can no longer take care of these rescued lions needs. The lions also could not be translocated because permits could not be issued. So unless people come together and take action, like they did for Earth Hour, these 16 beautiful lions will be "euthanized'.

You can read more about this on SimonB's blog, or just take action and make a donation directly into the SanWild account:

Lions are close to my heart. They are African, just like me, and also they are the brand of matchstick's that are part of this trading journey I am on.

So I've taken up SimonB's challenge for a number of reasons – what will be your reason for taking action and help save these lions?
