Greetings from Johannesburg, South Africa. Although I have a doctorate in psychotherapy, my main passion is advocating for nonhuman animal rights. I condemn all cruelty to nonhuman animals and therefore follow a vegan lifestyle. I would like to connect with other animal activists from all over the world. The fur trade is one of the most abhorrent practices on this planet. Innocent animals are subjected to prolonged suffering for a trivial fashion item. As the chairperson of Fur Free SA. we campaign towards ending the global fur industry. This might not happen in my lifetime, but even if I leave one footprint behind, that is one step closer to the goal. This blog is a forum to discuss all aspects of the fur industry. It also raises issues around animal activism in general. Johannesburg is a crazy city and I need to escape from time to time. This photo was taken next to the magnificent Zambezi river.

Sadly animal rights are not a priority in South Africa, as many people are still living in poverty here.

So I am always happy when there is something good happening for other species in S.A.

Lionsrock, situated in S.A., is a sanctuary for abused big cats from all over the world. This big cat sanctuary is run by FOUR PAWS (VIER PFOTEN) where around 100 rescued animals live in safety.

These animals have come from a range of terrible situations, including private homes, zoos and circuses.

Bringing these big cats to Lionsrock is not an easy process and takes months of planning. Despite the challenges of transporting these large creatures, Four Paws reports that “None of our animals that undertook the long trip to South Africa has ever been injured”.

Recently a Tiger family of six ~ two parents and their four offspring ~ was brought to Lionsrock.

The parents originally came from the Dartmoor Wildlife Park in England, where they lived in enclosures that were far too small for them. Since 2002 they have been living in Big Cat Centre FELIDA, known as Panthera, in the Netherlands.

Finally in May 2015 they were transported to Lionsrock where they will spend the rest of their lives in freedom in Africa.
