|“||My dad says we should only take what the pride needs, to keep the Circle of Life in balance. If we took down gazelles just to learn how to do it, pretty soon there wouldn't be any left. Then we'd be as bad as the hyenas.||”|
–Kiara on the Circle of Life
It states all that everything exists in a delicate balance. All organisms (including plants and people) are a part of it, and must respect it in order to maintain nature's balance and thus keep the current evolutionary era as long as possible.
The Circle of Life concept is explored in the 1994 movie The Lion King and is strongly emphasized throughout this television series. one goal of the Lion Guard is to protect the Circle of Life, and ensure that all animals live in harmony, not taking more than is necessary for their survival. Thus greed, gluttony, poaching, and thievery are looked down upon. The Circle of Life also requires larger predators to stay in their own territories, preventing conflict and disorder.
