Redhage the star in wildcats win over tigers on their way to Australia
As a young lion was shot by the Australian government, his father began training him on the lion pack at Mpumalanga Zoo in Zambia.
“I think we are very proud of the animal and what it is able to do, if it can be used for our conservation,” said Dr John Lister, manager of the park.
Zimbabwe’s Department of Conservation chief Ian MacDonald said his government was looking forward to seeing the animals at Australia.
Lister said they had received permission to release the lions but were awaiting approval from the Zimbabwean government to transport them to Canberra.
Zimbabwe Conservation says the new lions will be a crucial tool in restoring the wildlife to areas of the country that have been badly affected by violence following decades of civil war.
Lister said while the first pair will be released by early April, the majority of the lions will be transported by rail to the capital city of Harare where they can be introduced into areas devastated by conflict, and their numbers will grow significantly as the animals learn what it takes to thrive there.
He said there was an international outcry that lions from 더킹카지노neighbouring countries were imported, and that is why he had decided to take the lions from southern Africa.
“We believe our lions have been trained with that knowledge and have been very well-behaved in the habitat they’ve been in,” said Lister.
The next four are expected to be released at night, from mid-April through mid-May when the number of young lions will be increasing rapidly.
