Kevin Richardson

Kevin is a self-taught animal behaviourist, he has broken every safety rule known to man when working with wild lions. Flouting common misconceptions that breaking an animal’s spirit with sticks and chains is the best way to subdue them, he uses love, understanding and trust to develop personal bonds with them. Kevin’s unique relationships with these large predators have opened many doors and captivated the imagination of many people throughout the world. He has presented and produced several documentaries that detail his relationships with the animals and highlight the plight of lions both in captivity and in the wild. Kevin has also written a book appropriately named, "Part of the Pride" detailing his work over the years with the large carnivores and is now affectionately known by his fans worldwide as "The Lion Whisperer".


Kevin Richardson discusses the reality of lion cub petting and how this relates back to canned lion hunts and the likes of Melissa Bachman.
