One United Roar with Linda Tucker
One United Roar for Lions and Nature is a call to arms. It invites all of humanity to stand up, stand together and stand strong in support of Lions – and all of nature. After all, who will speak for the lions if not us? Why lions? Because lions are the capstone animal in their ecosystem, and science tells us that if the Capstone animal disappears, the entire ecology will collapse. This is the ecology that supports all of humanity and all of life. White Lions, specifically, are the apex, and there are fewer than a dozen of them living in their endemic habitat. We are that close to the precipice. How to turn back? By following the keys provided by the lions themselves, the 12 Laws of LionHearted Leadership which Linda Tucker unpacks in her shows with humour, joy and a deep celebration of Sacred Warriorship and the Divinity of Life. http://oneunitedroar.org/

The 9th Law of Co-Creation – Live your Dream
What exactly do we mean when we talk about co-creating a new paradigm and how do we get it right? Sometimes, no matter how true your intentions, things go wrong in life and in the world. In South Africa, we have just experienced a shameful hostile take over of our country by forces who clearly do not have the public interest at heart. It amounts to a bloodless coup: what roles will fear and love play in our path forward? As a.country we are having the rethink ourselves, and redefine the South African dream. In America, a similar process is underway. And yet, we can all look around us and identify people who are living their dream against all odds? Right here in White Lion Territory, Jason Turner – Scientist, lion ecologist, chief operations officer of the White Lion Trust, is doing exactly that. We spend some time in conversation with him, learning about the secrets of his success, why he does what he does. And about the choices along the way that made his dream possible.
BIO: After being rescued by a Tsonga medicine woman from a life-threatening encounter with a pride of lions in 1991, Linda Tucker relinquished an international fashion and marketing career to become a conservationist. Since then, she has dedicated her life to the urgent protection of the critically endangered White Lions, regarded as sacred icons by African elders: “The King of Kings”.
In 2002, Linda founded the Global White Lion Protection Trust to ensure the survival of the White Lions as a living heritage. She successfully secured vast protected heritage lands for them in the unique ecosystem which is their endemic habitat – the United Nations-designated Kruger to Canyons Biosphere.
For twenty years, Linda has promoted a LionHearted Leadership™ model for sustainable living with mutual benefits for Lions, Land and People.
Her initiatives include the StarLion Program, a global eco-educational program for emerging talent in youth leadership, and the White Lion Leadership Academy founded in 2012 and based on heart-centred knowledge which enables adult leaders from all walks of life to become powerful agents of change.
2016 sees the emergence of the Linda Tucker Foundation, which continues to teach LionHearted Leadership™ strategies in ecosystems and human systems for protecting our earth.
Campaigns are ongoing for the protection of lions from the notorious “Blood Lions” industry, which is speed-breeding lions in cages to be killed (a gross malpractice known as “Canned Lion Hunting”). She is regularly invited as special guest speaker at international congresses, public events, and TV interviews; she has presented at the South African Parliament and British Parliament, and has been honored with the Woman of Impact Award and Citation by the Governor of Maryland, USA.
Educated in Cambridge University (UK) and initiated by indigenous African lion shamans, Linda holds the honorary shamanic title in the great African tradition: Keeper of the White Lions. Her life has been well documented by, amongst others, Forbes Magazine 2013 , National Geographic, Reuters, CBS, Animal Planet and NHK Japan – and is currently the subject of a full length Hollywood movie script.
Linda Tucker lives in the heart of the White Lion Protected Area with her partner, lion ecologist Jason A. Turner, their dedicated team, and the magnificent prides they have rescued and successfully rewilded in a ground-breaking scientific reintroduction project.
Linda Tucker is author of Mystery of the White Lions (2001), Saving the White Lions (2013) and 12 Laws of LionHearted Leadership™ (2016).
