Promoting the conservation of the world's threatened species through the power of wildlife imagery.
With species extinction now occurring at a faster rate than at any time in Earth's history, effective awareness raising and education programmes are ever more vital. Powerful wildlife imagery is an emotive and effective means of building environmental awareness and engagement, and quick and easy access to this imagery is essential in the digital mass communications society we live in today. However, until now, this valuable imagery has been scattered throughout the world, in a wide variety of private, commercial and specialist collections, with no centralised collection, restricted public access, limited educational use, and no co-ordinated strategy for its long term preservation. ARKive is now putting that right, gathering together the very best films and photographs of the world's species into one centralised digital library, to create a unique audio-visual record of life on Earth, prioritising those species at most risk of extinction. Preserved and maintained for future generations, ARKive is making this key resource accessible to all, from scientists and conservationists to the general public and school children, via its award-winning website.

The Global White Lion Protection Trust was established in 2002 by researcher and environmentalist, Linda Tucker, for the specific purposes of protecting the White Lions; their endemic habitat; and their cultural heritage in perpetuity. Today, the White Lion Trust enjoys a support base of over 5000 people worldwide, many of whom, as experts in their field, provide skills and expertise in support of our charitable efforts. The White Lion Trust is a registered non-profit Public Benefit Organization [IT 8575/02 ; 048-299 NPO ; 930019129 PBO], with a founding Trust Deed which commits to the protection of the White Lions, and the associated cultural belief and knowledge systems which celebrate and uphold this sacred heritage. The White Lion Trust is governed by its Trustees and has two long-serving Parliamentary advisors on its Advisory Council: MP M.J Mahlangu, Speaker of the Council of Provinces and Adv Nkosi Phathekile Holomisa, President of CONTRALESA, as well as representatives from various global indigenous cultures, including Retired High Chief Francois Paulette (Dene People, Canada); Ilarion Imerculieff (Alleut People, Alaska) Mother Moon (Chippewa People, Ojibwa Nation, Native America) Dr Apela Colerado (Oneida People, Hawaii) Dr E. Richard Atleo (Nuu-chah-nul People, Canada), Cynthia Hart-Button (Hopi-Dakota). The White Lion Trust’s Patron is the world’s premier conservation figure, Dr Ian Player. At the present time, the White Lions are not protected by any law, regionally nationally or internationally. Instead, these rare animals may be shot in enclosures as high-income earning trophies (“Canned Hunting” READ MORE…) or hunted in the wild of their endemic habitat. For many years, the White Lion Trust has campaigned to have the White Lions protected as a national – and indeed global - heritage, and ensure that they are listed under international CITES and IUCN RED DATA legislation.
