CULTURE | New Yorkers: Have Dinner, Save a Lion This Friday with Linda Tucker!
In honor of Endangered Species Day this Friday, May 17th, Tolani Wine Restaurant in Manhattan has graciously opened up 200 seats to hungry, nature-conscious diners for a special fundraiser for the White Lion Protection Trust. Though white lions are not currently protected as an endangered species, there are only three white lion prides left in the wild. White lion conservationist Linda Tucker hopes that events like this one will help send a message to the leaders of the world that the need is not only great, but demanded by the people of the world to step in and save Africa’s most sacred animal from extinction in the wild.
