Tony Fitzjohn

In 1975, one of the wild lions near George Adamson’s camp inexplicably attacked Tony, biting him in the throat. The lion was driven off and the badly mauled Fitzjohn was carried back to camp, “Am I dying?” he asked. “I think you probably are but I’ll do my best,” George Adamson replied. Fortunately for us all, Tony survived. A Knight of the Order of the British Empire and one of the most recognized activists in the conservation world, to establishing the only Rhino Sanctuary in Tanzania at Mkomazi National Park. Tony’s work is an inspirational journey of what one committed individual can achieve against the odds. Learn more about Tony in his autobiography, ‘Born Wild’ and visit and
