A tragic result of human / carnivore conflict, Clarence, Nancy, Winnie and Gobbelina’s parents and pride were shot and killed when the pride escaped from Namibia’s famous Etosha National Park. Thankfully the four cubs were rescued by Marlice, but reintroduction into the wild is just not possible.

To release them back into Etosha National Park would most likely lead to them being killed by resident prides, and finding alternative safe release sites in Namibia can be a daunting task. Sites free of potential human / carnivore conflict are vital. Ultimately, our four feisty felines remained in the safety of the N/a’an ku sê reserve, their large enclosures providing a secure haven and providing a life of comfort.

We do not receive any government funding and are solely reliant on generous donations to continue caring for the many orphaned, injured and conflict animals that call N/a’an ku sê home. We simply could not do what we do without our supporters and donors.
