There’s nothing like a lion: they’re majestic, gorgeous, and fiercely intelligent animals. Hyenas, too, are wise, complex, and deeply thoughtful creatures. Both species display amazing capacities for love and gentleness, yet they are pegged as predators; the sad truth is that humans have all but destroyed the earth’s beautiful wildlife. In the next twenty years, lions could be extinct, their African plains destroyed by human interference. 

 

One amazing conservationist and zoologist, Kevin Richardson, provides us with this rare and moving glimpse into the lives of lions and hyenas. With their permission and trust, he shines light on the compassionate, playful creatures, reminding us that it's our responsibility to keep their habitats safe. If they can learn to show us humans this kind of love and gentle care, they deserve the very same from us. Take a look.
