Conservationist Kevin Richardson wanted to talk about African lions’ shrinking habitat but his friend Tau wanted to do the talking.
Kevin Richardson, also known as “The Lion Whisperer”, has an incredibly close relationship with the lions he works protects. He tried to film a PSA for World Lion Day on Aug. 10 to raise awareness about African lions’ shrinking habitats, but his lion friend Tau kept interrupting him.
Richardson has known Tau since he was a cub. Tau is one of many lions that Richardson works with.
Richardson filmed the PSA on his wildlife sanctuary in South Africa.
From the video’s description:
The Kevin Richardson Wildlife Sanctuary’s mission is to provide a self-sustaining African carnivore sanctuary for the purposes of wild species preservation through education, awareness and funding, especially pertaining to the rapid decline of large carnivores in Africa due to habitat loss, human-predator conflict, unscrupulous hunting, disease and their illegal trade.
