And the Names are….

In celebration of our Founder Martine Colette’s birthday, we are excited to announce the names of the lion cubs born at Wildlife Waystation on September 14, 2017.

Jala Gypsy

Jala Gypsy
Jala means “Special One” in Swahili, and Gypsy is in memory of her mother. She was named by Mayrene Ryan.

Tafari
“He who inspires awe.” Tafari was named by Mona Van Diepen

Nombie
Meaning “Beauty,” Nombie was named by Michele Pacheco

Thank you to everyone who submitted names to the contest.


Help Us with a Sponsorship!

Our cubs need sponsorships for their continued care. We are working to raise $10,000 each for Jala Gypsy, Nombie and Tafari to cover costs of food and health care during the coming year.

A Sweet Surprise.

At Wildlife Waystation, we have a strict non-breeding policy, but sometimes nature holds a surprise in her hands. Tangassi, one of our younger male lions, was taken in with the understanding that he had already been through a vasectomy. After a number of years at Wildlife Waystation, he was paired up with Gypsy for companionship and we all got a surprise. Three lion cubs - two girls and one boy - were born in September 2017.

"No one was more surprised than we were," said Martine Colette, Founder. "We take great precautions to spay and neuter our animals as necessary."
