Description

When the grand old ‘lion man of Africa’, George Adamson, passed away, the last of his lion cub orphans faced an uncertain future. Would the cubs have to spend their entire lives behind bars in a zoo, or would they have a free life in the wild, as George had intended for them? Lion expert Gareth Patterson rescues George’s cubs and, by living as a human member of the little pride, Gareth prepares to introduce the young lions back into the wild. This heart-warming book tells the true story of lioness Rafiki, her sister, Furaha, and her brother, Batian. Many years ago, it was estimated that some 25 lions existed across the continent of Africa. Today it is thought that only 2 lions remain. Due to the actions of poachers, trophy hunters and conflict with people because of their livestock, the mighty king of the animals is in real trouble .The title of this book is Born to be Free and that is what all lions and other wild animals should be – free. Free to live their lives in the wild as nature had intended. Rafiki’s story shows how important it is for lions to be free – and that we should protected from harm. The African bush would no longer be the same if all the lions were gone. What would we say to our children’s children if the last lion was gone – forever gone? That is why all of us must hold the lion in our hearts, and do our best to protect Rafiki’s kind.
