From 30th March onwards, Wildlife Direct will no longer be accepting donations on behalf of the conservation groups that blog with them, like the Lion Guardians. But don’t worry! You will still be able to get all the latest news from the lions and their Guardians right here on the Lion Guardians Wildlife Direct blog, and you will also be able to support our work by donating too.
We will receive all donations made to Lion Guardians through Wildlife Direct up until the end of March BUT as of April 1st, when you click on DONATE, you will be taken to Panthera’s website, who also accept donations on behalf of the Lion Guardians (as well as many other big cat conservation groups). The brilliant news is that 100% of the donation you make to the Lion Guardians through Panthera will go straight to us!
For those of you who make monthly donations to the Lion Guardians, your subscriptions will be cancelled on 30th March and you will have to move these over to Panthera in order for us to continue to receive your support. We really need your continued support, so please please CLICK HERE, to start donating monthly to us through Panthera instead.
After April 1st when you click on DONATE you will be directed to Panthera’s donate page. You will be given the option of choosing which project to support in the Allocation drop down menu – please choose the LION GUARDIANS option. Then just fill in the details and pay with a credit card as before. You can choose to make a one-off donation towards the Lion Guardians, or a monthly, quarterly or yearly donation (choose this from the drop down menu).
The only difference is that you won’t be able to see your donation on the sidebar of the blog. However you will get a confirmation email from Panthera, and please be assured that we will be getting 100% of your donation from them.
You can either choose to sponsor a particular item from the list on the blog, and make a donation for that amount, or choose any amount to donate. All amounts are in US dollars. If you are making a donation from outside of the US, visit this currency converter site to work out the exact amount in dollars that you wish to donate.
If you are already sponsoring a Lion Guardian we will keep a record of this and when you move your monthly donation over to Panthera your Guardian sponsorship will continue. If you are a new donor and would like to sponsor a Lion Guardian, please just make a comment on the blog telling us which Guardian you would like to sponsor.
We would like say a huge thank you to all our blog readers and donors, and to Panthera for their fantastic support, and would also like to encourage all our blog readers to visit their website http://www.panthera.org and have a look at all the cat programs and projects they work with around the world.
THANK YOU from all the Lion Guardians!
