Fundraise for Asiatic Lions

Lion cartoon
The Zoological Society of London’s Asiatic Lions Campaign aims to secure the future of the majestic Asiatic lion, which survives in only one isolated Indian forest.

These lions need your help as there are only a few hundred left in the wild. We challenge you and your school to raise money for our campaign using our fantastic fundraising pack.
