Kevin Richardson is a South African Zoologist who over the years has conducted extensive research on the native animals of the African plains. With his decades of hands on study and research, Mr. Richardson has developed an awe-inspiring and heart-warming relationship with these ferocious felines of the South African Savanna. Watch, as Kevin calls the lions they immediately charged after him, wrap their paws and gave him the most adorable hug. It’s seemingly impossible to see how he cuddles these 400 pound animals, it’s almost like he’s a lion whisperer.
Kevin is able to use his unique relationship with these animals to capture people’s attention and draw awareness to the problems facing the wild life in Africa.
Kevin found that these creatures are losing their natural habitat quickly due to unscrupulous hunting and human “development”, teaming with animals to hunt, bringing many animals, including these majestic lions closer on the endangered species list. He predicts that if this continues, we will not be seeing more lions within the next 20 years.
Kevin hopes that he can change the view and outlook we have on these beautiful creatures, instead of a “Kill or be Killed” mentality.
