David Macdonald thanks Cecil’s supporters around the world

July 29, 2015

Jimmy Kimmel implored his millions of listeners in the USA to make donations to support our work on lions, and conservation more widely. We are so grateful for this and for the up-welling of support for our work worldwide.

People are telling us that they are copying our appeal to all their mailing lists and contacts – this is wonderful – thank you: for an organisation that depends on philanthropy we are deeply grateful for this support – it will be a wonderful monument to Cecil the lion if we are empowered by these donation to continue and to increase our conservation work. The email deluge is overwhelming us, so we cannot reply individually, but we thank you sincerely.

Millions of people around the world have been inspired to express the value they place on lions and other wildlife – if each of them grasps this moment to make a donation to our project, however small, our capacity to work for conservation would be revolutionised. Now is the moment to help!

Thank you,
David Macdonald.
