A Tribute to George Adamson
|Sadly in August
1989 George Adamson was murdered in Kenya, East Africa by Somalian bandits when he went to
the rescue of a young European tourist in the Kora Reserve. He was a unique and wonderful
gentleman who devoted his life to helping wildlife and to protecting the unique
environment in which they lived. He lived a rugged life style in a bush camp with only a
few modern conveniences.
He was a Hero to the end .... giving his life to save another!
In Memory of George and all his wonderful lions, you can
SAVE a Lion's Life .... SUPPORT an Animal
organization that helps the big cats.(See Links page)
