    Looks like SAPA is working hard to refute the minimal benefit to wild lions argument.
    Good luck.

    Damn, I wish there were a way to get this info on TV in the U.S. and the rest of the world.

    I'm really happy that Angola's getting some conservation TLC, especially because of how overshadowed it is by its neighbors.

    I have hunted with Warthog Safaris. Tienie and Ananja are tremendous people that care passionately about lions and run a great operation in the Limpopo and the Free State. Hope all goes well with this project!

    For us non-biologists - any issues with the lions adapting to Angola, or is the environment similar enough?

    I have some questions
    1. Where did the lions come from?
    2. How many females and males?
    3. How are the cats adapting to their new home?

    The lions came from the Free State farm of Warthog Safaris in RSA. I sent a note to them concerning the other questions.

    Now the anti's will protest that you are causing a shortage of lions in SA and they need to be on the endangered no-hunt list. :)
