The Kevin Richardson Wildlife Sanctuary’s mission is to provide a self-sustaining African carnivore sanctuary for the purposes of wild species preservation through education, awareness and funding, especially pertaining to the rapid decline of large carnivores in Africa due to habitat loss, human-predator conflict, unscrupulous hunting, disease and their illegal trade.

To raise awareness, Kevin has now set up his YouTube Channel ‘LionWhispererTV’. The channel is all about raising awareness about not only the declining numbers of lions, but also how this rapid decrease is happening. By watching these videos, you are directly contributing to our scheme of land acquisition.

Kevin captures the majority of his footage on GoPro cameras, allowing the viewer to get as close as possible to the lions.

By doing this, Kevin hopes to give people an insight into the lives of these beautiful creatures and to let them see just what they can do to help. You can nearly touch them.

  1. I’ve always thought hyenas are really f*cking cute.

    But then again, I also love crows and vultures, so maybe I’m kinda weird…

  2. I wanted to see way more footage of that hyena interacting with the male lion. In the wild they are mortal enemies and a male lion will kill any hyena he can catch. To see them get that close to each other was amazing to behold.

  3. Que injusto que las personas desprecien las hienas solo porque las ven feas o por ver el rey león tiene que haber una oportunidad a las pobres hienas

  4. A few docile, near tamed, Hyena won't change many opinions. They're known to eat their prey alive and are intelligent enough to have a sadistic streak.

    If I'm wrong then please provide proof that WILD Hyena are just as lovable as these guys?

  5. Oh yeah I heard a story about a female hyena finding a human baby. It could have eaten it but instead it nurtured it until it’s parevts found it. I don’t remember where I heard it as it was years ago. Another story about a hyena who was raised by a man and sacrificed itself to save him From a look attack…
