Yerga's Pride


Yerga, Bayhas, Shagra and Hawsa

These siblings were advertised to be sold on Facebook in war-torn Syria in 2013 when they were just 4 days old. The cubs to be transferred to the New Hope Centre, and later moved to Al Ma'wa Sanctuary in the fall of 2016. Unlike many human sibling groups, there is no fighting amongst this pride and they like to share both the space they have and the different forms of enrichment placed within their enclosure! Yerga is the head of the pride but has a quiet and gentle demeanor. Bayhas and Hawsa have shown some neurological issues since birth but this does not stop them from enjoying their time at Al Ma'wa.
