“Linda Tucker is destined to be a figure on the world stage such asJane Goodall and Desmond Tutu – whose eloquence and sheer force of lived conviction can move millions…” – Andrew Harvey
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.
