Darem The Lion Defender


9 in stock


Darem is a young boy living in Africa where he spends most of his time herding his family’s cattle.  People say that he should be scared of lions but Darem starts to think differently as he comes to know a small family of lions living near his village.  Follow Darem’s story as he learns what he can do to help lions as well as his family and community.

This heart-warming tale is one of a series of bilingual books written by Professor Amy Dickman and Dr Alayne Cotterill, joint CEOs of Lion Landscapes and Conservation Partners to PTES.  Beautifully illustrated by Kayla Harren, these stories give children across the world an insight into the challenges and benefits that living alongside wildlife brings.

Lion Landscapes puts local people at the heart of their own conservation stories and Darem the Lion Defender is distributed freely to children across Africa.  Through their ‘On The Same Page’ pledge, every purchase of Darem the Lion Defender will fund a book for an African child like Darem.
