First film about newly discovered forest lions in Ethiopia that could be killed as they are seen as a threat to locals.
Bristol, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/26/2013 -- Although African lions are 'King of the Jungle' they are actually never seen in rainforests, but recent photographs have revealed a population of lions living in the high forests of Ethiopia. For the first time, the documentary Expedition Jungle Lion will film these secretive lions so people can discover more about them. With funding help it can also raise awareness of these rare lions and help protect them from the bullet.
Expedition Jungle Lion is an Aqua Vita Films production with the assistance of NABU Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union in Germany. NABU are working to research, protect and manage the incredible wildlife in this Biosphere Reserve and work to protect the forest people. They passionately feel that this remarkable story needs to be told.
This film will be used to inform schools, organizations, corporations, businesses and governments about the importance of these lions and why they need to be protected. The aim is to make a greater, in depth film about these lions for international broadcast, but they cannot do this unless they get this footage first. It is important that they raise enough funds, not just to get out there, but also, to allow them to spend the time needed to get crucial footage of these amazing rare lions. Every penny that is pledged goes 100% into the production of the film.
This project will only be funded if at least £25,000 is pledged by Friday Aug 30, 7:00pm EDT.
