Relocating our lion prides

On February 16 2011, twenty five lions touched down at Denver International Airport. After a journey of thousands of miles, the Lion Ark had made it. The lions were finally home.

These lions are now a million miles from the circus, living in a huge 80 acre natural enclosure at The Wild Animal Sanctuary.
