You Can Join Our Expedition – Become a Fundraiser

We are nearly halfway to our goal of raising $20,000 for lion conservation by climbing Mt Kenya in January. We can’t reach the top alone. You can join our expedition no matter where in the world you are by becoming a fundraiser.

  • Set up your own crowd-funding page and tell your friends.
  • We have a collection of great graphics you can use as your Facebook profiles.
  • Use the hashtag #ClimbForLions and help us spread the word that Kenya’s lions are in serious trouble unless we engage local communities.

We are deeply grateful to everyone who has already donated!
