Nicknamed 'The Lion Whisperer,' Kevin Richardson is known for his astonishing rapport with lions at his Wildlife Sanctuary in South Africa. Last year, a video of him hugging and snuggling with fully grown lions garnering nearly 19 million times on YouTube.

To commemorate World Lion Day, Richardson released a new video where he begins to explain the plight of the lions -- a plight a lion named Tau seems to be equally passionate about.

At the mention of the habitat loss, Tau starts growling and howling. Richardson passes the time by lip-syncing along and getting a friendly pat from another cuddly lion.

Finally, Tau finishes his speech ... and Richardson is able to continue.
