Lady Liuwa no more !!

The 'Last Lioness' of the Liuwa Np Zambia, Lady Liuwa has did of natural causes ,at a ripe old age of 17,as confirmed by African Parks.

Her survival against odd and her relationship with the camera man/ film maker Herbert Brauer,as she reached out to him for companionship is beautifully documented .

Long live the queen !!

An extract from African parks:
"Due to years of illegal hunting, lions were completely eradicated from Liuwa Plain in the 1990’s, except for her. She roamed the plains alone for years as the sole survivor in the park and became known as the ‘Last Lioness’.

However, after years of wandering the plains as the sole lioness, and after several reintroductions undertaken by African Parks starting in 2007, we were finally able to unite her with her own kind. While she was unable to have cubs of her own, she bonded with a reintroduced lioness named Sepo who had several litters whom she helped raise.
Her ability to live to such an extraordinary age for a wild lion is a testament to the collaborative protection she was afforded by African Parks, the Zambia Department of National Parks and Wildlife (DNPW), the Barotse Royal Establishment (BRE) and the Zambia Carnivore Programme."
