What We Can Learn from South Africa's Legendary White Lions
Some especially charismatic animals have often been viewed as archetypally important or linked to prophetic teachings by Indigenous cultures. This is true of the White Bison among some tribes on the Great Plains, British Columbia's "Spirit Bear" and South Africa's White Lions. World renowned conservationist Linda Tucker and leading lion ecologist Jason Turner, who together created the Global White Lion Protection Trust, will explain how this rare species has helped bring together cutting-edge modern ecology with Indigenous ancestral wisdom to help heal ecosystems and divides of race, tribe, gender and culture, reaching to the very origin of humankind's contract with Earth. They’ll also share what these extraordinary creatures can teach us about our own capacity for leadership.
