ANDI & LINE
Andi began her career in caring for lions in 2011 when she saved 53 lions from an auction. Working for these lions became her passion and in 2015 she made the brave move to set up a lion sanctuary of her own.
Andi is the Founder of LLA, she is known from the tv-show "The Lion Queen" on Animal Planet.
Line first visited the lions in 2015 at which time her passion to help them was ignited, she came to LLA for 12 months in 2016 but on returning to Norway, realised she couldn't leave the lions so she resigned from the policeforce and returned to LLA permanantly.
Andi & Line's mission is to offer lions who were born in captivity a safe place to live out the rest of their lives in dignity and peace.
The two women live their live's with dedication and commitment to the animals in their care. Believing that the lifestyle, health and psychological well being of the lions paramount.
They are open about the fact that they do touch the lions they work with. `"we have had 4 rescue cubs come to LLA for sanctuary and at the place Andi first started working with lions, there were many cubs born who needed her attention. That was a breeding facility so she cared for the cubs who needed her and seperated breeding couples to prevent more and more cubs from being born"
They do not however allow any visitors to interact with the lions and they themselves only have contact with th efew who voluntarily come to the fence for a greeting from Andi or Line. The women do not go into lion enclosures.
