Animal rescues

Free to be wild, our lions enjoy sanctuary

The record-breaking Operation Lion Ark began with ADI rescuing and relocating EVERY SINGLE SUFFERING CIRCUS ANIMAL in Bolivia and ended on February 16 2011, with the last 25 lucky lions touching down at Denver airport to start their new life of freedom at The Wild Animal Sanctuary.
