The European Premiere of #TheLionKing took place at the Odeon Theatre in London last night. The event was attended by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, alongside the incredible cast and filmmakers. In celebration of the film’s release, The Walt Disney Company announced #ProtectThePride campaign, a global conservation initiative where @disney and the @lionrecovery have partnered in an effort to protect the rapidly diminishing lion population across Africa. African Parks, a partner and beneficiary of the Lion Recovery Fund, is honoured to have been given the opportunity to attend such an event alongside our President, The Duke of Sussex. We too are committed to protecting this iconic big cat and are doing so where lions occur in eight of the 15 parks under our management (Zakouma, Pendjari, Garamba, Chinko, Akagera, Liuwa Plain, Majete and Liwonde). Through effective park management and protection, in partnership with Governments, we have transformed these landscapes enabling lions, other wildlife and people to recover and thrive.
