The African lion at WRR is the only non-native large cat at the sanctuary.
The African lion is the second-largest cat after the tiger.
African lions are not always highly active and spend many hours sleeping or resting. They can often be found lying on their backs with their feet up or napping in a tree.
Wildlife Rescue’s Vision is that humans come to see that we are members of a vast life community, that we experience the proper gratitude and respect for this community, and that we live in a more appropriate and compassionate manner in relation to the whole.
WRR was founded in 1977 in San Antonio, Texas. Since 2001 its primary base of operations has been located on 212 acres near Kendalia, Texas, a property which was purchased through the generosity of three of our supporters.
