Clarence, now the king of the N/a’an ku sê Foundation Wildlife Sanctuary. However, this mighty male had a somewhat shaky start in life. Born in Namibia’s Etosha National Park, Clarence was still a young lion when his pride broke out of the park’s boundaries and strayed onto farmland. The tragic consequence? The pride being killed, leaving Clarence and his sibling, Winnie, orphaned. Due to their young age, the farmer concerned decided to keep the cubs as a potential tourist attraction – in conditions not befitting their wild natures. Thankfully, the lions’ plight came to the attention of Namibia’s Ministry of Environment, Forestry and Tourism (MEFT). The two were confiscated and came to the N/a’an ku sê Foundation Wildlife Sanctuary.
Their habituation to humans has prevented release back into the wilds of Namibia, ‘returning the wild to the wild’ the mantra of the N/a’an ku sê Foundation. We release animals whenever possible, but, at times, circumstances dictate otherwise. Clarence has become an impressive ambassador animal, giving many local and international tourists the chance to witness his predatorial power first-hand. He represents his wild brethren in a wonderful way and helps promote the conservation of Namibia’s lions.
Let Clarence join your pride for just USD 250.00 per year. Every symbolic animal adoption supports the animals of the N/a’an ku sê Foundation.
