RIP Alma

Published on: August 6, 2023

Four days before World Lion Day 2023, Alma passed at the age of 23.

Along with Mala, Nala, and Dona, Alma was part of the 47 animals neglected and deprived in a Burkinabe zoo. Their strength and perseverance held on until the arrival of aid from Wild at Life e.V. and The Association for the Protection of Fauna and Flora in 2019.

Alma’s advanced age and previously inadequate nutritional care contributed to her permanent blindness. Although we were aware of her limited years ahead, we were determined to make her final handful of years as comfortable as possible. She lived bravely for another three years.

Alma the fighter shared a profound bond with her lion companions and was reciprocally cherished. Her absence leaves a void not only within our hearts, but within those of Mala, Nala, and Dona as well.
