“Kevin Richardson, Lion Whisperer”.
It’s a title he doesn’t like, but how else can you label his extraordinary relationship with these beautiful animals? As a zoologist and animal behaviourist, he works at a lion park in South Africa. Here he has formed incredible relationships with the big cats – playing with them, lying down with them, being included in every part of their lives as ‘one of the pride’.
Those who work with lions in the traditional way – using sticks, chains and coercion – call him crazy. But Kevin’s ability to get inside the head of a lion, using love, patience and a unique empathy, have kept him safe in situations that would result in certain death to anyone else. This is Kevin’s incredible story: how a man could become part of a lion pride, giving fascinating insight into the lives of one of the world’s most beautiful and powerful animals, and sending a message that in order to keep this beautiful species on Earth, we need to conserve–and possibly even give back–their natural habitats.
