Re-confirmation of this event’s objectives
To allocate an equal percentage of the revenue generated to the pivotal aspects of land-corridor purchase and livestock compensation.

‘Conservation Tourism’ is the founding concept and impetus behind Great Plains Conservation and its associated non-profit organization, Great Plains Foundation.

It is a co-operative approach that recognizes the crucial role played by the local community in any conservation endeavour. In line with this ethos, the revenue generated for the Great Plains Foundation by this event, will be equally apportioned between related community and lion conservation needs.

To conserve is an act of power. It is an active choice to preserve and protect something precious and irreplaceable; to gift the generations to come with a living legacy.
