The Lion, strong, majestic, bold and ferocious! Also famously known as “The King of The Jungle” for their massive size and their brute strength.
Lions live up to their reputation of being one of the most powerful creatures in the world!
A lion’s roar is arguably one of the most iconic animal sounds in the world. It can be heard from several kilometers away, safely described as blaring and thunderous! Roars are used as an indicator of territory by males and can also be used to locate distant pride members.
Sadly, the number of lions over the years has rapidly declined. The International Union for Conservation of Nature has listed The Lion as vulnerable due to the 45% decrease in their population. The Lion has always been the symbol of Africa, and they need our help!
Their numbers have plummeted due to various factors:
At Ocean Sole, we have heard the plight of the lions and we feel obligated to bring awareness to them and help preserve and conserve these great creatures!
We make upcycled Flip Flop sculptures in small, medium, large, extra-large, double extra-large and sometimes master pieces. When we sell these pieces, we donate the profits to help organizations that lead the fight in lion conservation and preservation.
For our small lion pieces, we use 4 flip flops and it will take 4 hours to complete. Our medium pieces require 7 hours of work, and 10 Flip flops! Our large lion pieces will take 16 hours to complete and will use 15 flip flops. To make our extra-large lion pieces it takes 45 hours and 35 flip flops. The double extra large pieces require 82 hours and 85 flip flops to make.
You can champion the cause to protect our lions by purchasing any of our lion artworks, talking to friends and family about their situation, and donating to organizations that are fighting to preserve and protect the lion.
This World Lion Day gives us an opportunity to do something meaningful for our wildlife. Individually, we can all contribute to changing the future of our lions and give them a chance at survival.
