Biographies of the Speakers
Linda Tucker – In the midst of a global lion crisis that treats Africa’s most sacred animals as a killing commodity in cross-border trade, Linda Tucker has dedicated her life to the solution.
After being rescued by a Tsonga medicine woman from a life-threatening encounter with a pride of lions in 1991, Linda Tucker gave up a career in international marketing to become a conservationist. She has dedicated her life to ensuring the flourishing of the critically endangered White Lions, regarded as sacred animals, yet amongst the world’s most targeted trophy.
Founder of the Global White Lion Protection Trust and Linda Tucker Foundation, she and her team have successfully rewilded the White Lions, securing vast protected heritage lands in the heart of their ancestral territories in UNESCO’s Kruger to Canyons Biosphere. https://whitelions.org/
