Dave Salmoni Walks INTO THE PRIDE to Save Magnificent Lions Marked for Death
- Salmoni’s Quest to Rescue Last-chance Lions Premieres
After spending much time in the “urban jungle” as a host and executive producer, Salmoni is given the ultimate opportunity to reconnect with two of his lasting passions — the serenity and solitude of living in the wild and his love of big cats, particularly lions.
INTO THE PRIDE extends far beyond Salmoni’s personal journey. As their last chance for survival, Salmoni must help a pride of “problem lions” learn to accept humans and support the growing eco-tourism in the area. These cats, transplanted from the largest national park in
INTO THE PRIDE is just as much about the man as it is about the beasts that he encounters. The series tests all of Salmoni’s experience and knowledge as a zoologist and large predator expert as he risks everything — including his life and the safety of his TV crew. The experience will change him every bit as much as it changes the lions. Watch to see if the two species can harmoniously share the land they both depend on for survival.
