“Large, powerful, but regal, Cecil was known for being comfortable around humans—and simply for having a name, say those that knew him”
Cecil the Lion was a majestic creature, known for his gentle nature and instantly loved by all who saw him. He was killed by Mr Walter palmer, a Minnesota dentist who shot dead Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe has sparked major outrage globally, Cecil was a male Southwest African lion who primarily lived in the Hwange National Park in Matabeleland North, Zimbabwe. He was a major attraction at the park and was being studied and tracked by Oxford University as part of a larger study.
The killing of Cecil the lion has provoked outrage worldwide, with Zimbabwe has started extradition proceedings and hopes the United States will cooperate, said Oppah Muchinguri, the African nation’s environment minister. A Gold plating company Goldgenie has created a special version of the HTC One M9 dedicated to the memory of Cecil the lion to raise funds for a charity dedicated to the conservation of animals in Hwange National Park where he lived.
Many including me would recommend to donate any means of support towards ,Friends of Hwange which is a charity that is working hard towards the conservation of wildlife in Hwange National Park, the home that Cecil was cruelly lured from.
Hwange National Park is Zimbabwe’s largest game reserve and faces many challenges such as developing and maintaining water resources, protecting the animals from poachers and maintenance of roads. The Friends of Hwange Trustees emphasize that 100% of donated money is used in the Park for the good of the animals as the trust does not incur any running expenses outside of the Park and all work done by the Trustees is done so on a voluntary basis.
