Cara Delevingne wears her love for lions on her sleeve. Well, close — she has a tattoo of a lion on her finger. But when it comes to Cecil the Lion, she is pretty serious about doing the right thing. The model-actress (and awkward interview subject) announced on Instagram that she was auctioning off her very fancy and expensive TAG Hueur watch to benefit WildCRU, the organization that was studying Cecil until he was killed.

The killing of Cecil the Lion was a tragedy. Today JOIN ME to help the scientists who care about the future of wild lions in Africa and work very hard on their conservation. Ahead of the official sale of my TAG Heuer Signature Edition watch, I decided to auction my personal timepiece at the link above or go on eBay. I wore this watch on several occasions and during the last Monaco Grand Prix. The full amount will be refunded to WildCRU.org, the research unit that followed Cecil for many years. SO LETS JOIN FORCES!
The auction is taking place on eBay where the current highest bid is £6,100.00. So, if you happen to have some extra pounds lying around and want a supermodel’s fancy watch while donating to a great cause in Cecil’s name, the auction is open for another three days!
