About the author

Linda Tucker grew up in South Africa during apartheid and attended the universities of Cape Town and Cambridge, UK. In 2002, she founded the Global White Lion Protection Trust, a non-profit organization that works not only to protect the white lions, but also to support the communities and knowledge of the Tsonga and Sepedi cultures, which celebrate the white lion as a sacred living heritage. She has been a guest speaker at multiple international conservation congresses, and her work has been featured in documentaries produced by National Geographic and CBS. She lives in the protected area neighbouring South Africa’s Timbavati Reserve with her partner, lion ecologist Jason A Turner, together with the white lion prides they have successfully reintroduced to the wild.
