The Lion Habitat Ranch- Las Vegas, NV 2011-2013

The Lion Habitat Ranch (home of the African lions previously seen at The MGM Hotel) invited The Nomad Grad out to test and develop their Trainer 4 A Day Program.

She also hosted a cub encounter giveaway in December of 2012 which was received with great success. She made appearances with The Lion Habitat at KTNV Channel 8 in Las Vegas to help promote the Habitat and provided private tours to all of her winners. She still serves as an advocate for The Lion Habitat and wild lion environment conservation. To read about the winner’s experience, click here.
