Hi Madame X here. Babette asked to write and explain to you all, the meaning of our association & project. This photo, a lady incognito, representing my position in this project. A little background info. A singer for life, some say I’m famous, all inferior to what’s happening to the lions, but now I’m retired I have time for other passions in life. Photography of African and Asian wildlife one of them, how the mutual liking of myself and Babette got renewed. I got to know her back in the 80s as genuine and sweet girl, true to what and who she believed in, treating me as celeb always with utmost respect.
B. wrote me asking to be the human ambassador for her amazing project & foundation Wild Cats World. We had long talks, time passed, meanwhile I observed from a distance how her foundation functioned and had myself informed about many other orgs, conservationists, projects and sanctuaries, visited countries, had long talks. I managed to purchase meaningful land in European countries, in the South and some up North where I originally belong. Land not for myself but to help to make this dream and huge project come true. Years back Babette and myself got in touch again, I explained not becoming ambassador for WCW, but expressed my deep wish to be part of something big to give a better life to animals and esp lions, cheetahs. WCW was my first choice, this organisation, well no words to waste, is there for cats for animals and for them only. The respect and discretion to me and my choice to stay ‘in cognito” & Babette’s understanding this is why I won’t be able to be ambassador for her foundation, was the start to talk further. We talk about years of preparation, now Babette has my permission to give up-dates as this is an essential project, a personal fight against the Canned Hunting business.
I am in favour of not just yet fighting the aggressive way but by other means. Fame and means help but in the whole picture there’s only one thing that matters and that is the lions and to get them out of this “situation” and to be able to offer them the moon, the stars and safety. I can and with Wild Cats World by my side we will be able to achieve the unthinkable. Please don’t ask too many questions,don’t judge but support us, support the lions and please if you love the wild cats support Babette & Wild Cats World.”
Yours faithfully, Madame X, Canned Hunting -X- Project.
