#TEAMEARTH2020 ~ Lion Farming, Trophy Hunting & Conservation
Sunday 25th October
The Clifton Pavilion
10.30 ~ 4.30ish
I read ‘Cuddle Me ~ Kill Me’ by Richard Peirce, it was a life changing read which saw me volunteer at the sanctuary featured in the book & become passionate about the demise of lion farms & all that that entails.
This years event will be a debate with a panel of experts, audience participation & hosted by Peter Egan
We will start with an introduction to the speakers, followed by one of the first screenings of
‘Lions, Bones & Bullets’
A hard hitting film by Richard Peirce following the success of his book ‘Cuddle Me ~ Kill Me’

I am in talks with other potential speakers & would be interested to hear from any trophy hunters who would be willing to represent the ‘sport’
