Wellington & Cromwell proudly presents the Cecil Safari Backpack, a commemorative tribute to Cecil the Lion of Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe who was tragically killed on July 1, 2015.
Cecil was the best-known animal in the national park and was identifiable by his black-fringed mane and a GPS tracking collar. The lions in the park, including Cecil, are being studied by scientists from the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit at Oxford University.
Profits from sale of the Cecil Safari Backpack will be donated to the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit at Oxford.
The inscription inside the flap of the Cecil Safari Backpack reads: "I believe that the worldwide engagement with Cecil’s story transcends the tragic fate of one lion, and sends a signal that people care about conservation and want it to be reflected in how humanity lives alongside nature in the 21st century." Professor David Macdonald, Oxford University Wildlife Conservation Research Unit
Backpack measures 17.5" x 12.5" x 6.5" for the main body. The three external pockets, two on the sides and one on the front are 1.5" deep.
