“Knowledge is like a Lion; it cannot be gently embraced.” ~ South African proverb
Today Is World Lion Day. Here is one of these most majestic of creatures, seen at the ‘Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve’, set in the heart of the ‘Cradle of Humankind’ World Heritage Site, west of Johannesburg.
World Lion Day is:
“An independent campaign working to highlight the importance of the lion globally and to raise lion conservation awareness worldwide. “Saving the King of Beasts to Save Ourselves”
…The lion is an enduring symbol across the nations and has fascinated man throughout the millennia. To lose such a species would be to lose a significant part of our global heritage.”
as stated at the official ‘World Lion Day‘ campaign page.

“It’s better to be a lion for a day, than a sheep all your life.”
