This is enough to warm even the wildest of hearts. Deep in the African bush a lioness gives giant hug to the two men who saved her. As a cub, Sirga was driven out of her pride and rescued by Valentin Gruener and Mikkel Legarth who could not stand by and watch her die. Now the 110lb lioness has developed an incredible bond with the pair who are fighting to save her species in Botswana, southern Africa.

Sirga treats the two conservationists just like she would other lions and with their help she can now hunt for prey on her own. She is now a beacon for hoped success of the Modisa Wildlife Project, founded in Botswana, Africa, by Mr Gruener, from Germany, and Mr Legarth, who is Danish, with the hope of saving the lion population. Botswana is two and a half times the size of Britain and has vast areas of wilderness - but already increased farming is bringing lions and man into more and more conflict.

From a base camp in the African bush the Modisa Wildlife Project has been working with local farmers and Willie De Graaff, owner of Grassland Safari Lodge, to find a way long term solution.The plan is to relocate the lions which are coming into contact with farmers to one large protected area where they have enough wild prey to feed on.As these amazing shots show Mikkel and Valentin has an incredible affinity for the lions they rescue and not just Sirga.

Text: 一個夢

早上夢到我們去中東自助旅行,住在青年旅社,共用衛浴而遇到一團臺灣人,結為朋友。

然後我帶相機出門晃,剛好遇到接駁巴士,上了車載去某個地方下車,有很美的沙漠落日以及雄偉五光十色的建築招牌,我就拿起相機拍照去了。

拍著拍著,遇到一處服務生出來阻止我進入拍照,我跟他們要附近的簡單地圖,他們拿出達美樂的分店地址,用破爛中文跟我解釋說那是他們手上有的最接近地圖的東西。

我跟他們說我迷路了,他們說乾脆來附近玩,我說我還有朋友在等我,他們知道我只有一部無法上網的手機以及相機,很好心的服務生以及領班三個人,拿出他們手上的零錢給我,讓我路上使用。

其中領班給了20元,其他兩人都是零頭,他們的貨幣長的很可愛:

有圓形、花形、三片葉形,一個服務生還好心的解釋給我聽葉形的是多少錢:葉尖朝上的大約5分錢、花形的是10分錢。

然後我就醒了。
