World Lion Day, August 10th
Please help us on World Lion Day, August 10th, a day on which the importance of this majestic species is marked around the world, to secure a better future for the countless lions that are currently suffering around the world in the name of “entertainment.”
As I write, ADI is working on three continents to help lions, and other wild animals, who are caged and confined in circuses against their will. Without our action, and your support, these animals will continue to endure a lifetime of suffering.
In Peru, we are presently in the midst of a huge rescue mission, emptying circuses of their wild animals. We secured the ban in 2012 and now we are helping to enforce the ban and save the animals! Like our Lion Ark mission in Bolivia, we have many, many lions to rescue, as well as monkeys and other animals. All the animals will be brought to safety – no one will get left behind – and they will be able to live out the rest of their lives in peace, with the companionship of their own kind.
In the US, ADI is working to secure a ban on the use of lions and other wild animals in circuses through a new bill, the Traveling Exotic Animal Protection Act (TEAPA), introduced by Congressman Jim Moran. Support for the bill is steadily building but we must continue to push forward to win protection for the hundreds of wild animals that are forced to perform humiliating tricks in circuses and to endure a life on the road, and often brutality and violence.
Help us save lions in the US
Please urge your Congressional representative to back TEAPA
and sign our petition to support the ban.
In Britain, lions and other wild animals are continuing to suffer in the circus, despite repeated pledges by Government to bring in a ban. The excuse is a lack of parliamentary time but this is not good enough. Whilst Government stalls on this issue, animals continue to be made to perform, and the risk of new circuses and new animal acts entering the country hangs over us. Please help us keep up the pressure to get legislation passed before the election next year.

Thank you for your support and for making World Lion Day count for these majestic big cats who are denied their freedom in circuses around the world.
