Lion Ark The Movie says
More action adventure style than traditional documentary, Lion Ark is a rollercoaster ride, taking you into the thick of the action, up close and personal with the animals and their rescuers. Through real-life action, interviews, conversations and reactions as events unfold, you can experience the fear and joy of the rescuers as they journey through their incredible mission. The film tells the story of the most ambitious and daring animal rescue of its kind. ADI secures a ban on animal circuses in Bolivia following a two-year undercover investigation across South America. Now the law must be enforced. Across vast, hostile terrains the illegal circuses are tracked down, the animals saved, brought to safety and reach a joyous finale as 25 lions are airlifted to freedom in the US.

This event will be dedicated to ADI Lion Ark veterinarian the late Dr Mel Richardson who lived in Atlanta. There is a special tribute to Mel among the bonus features on the Lion Ark DVD available now. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers and rescue team and a special short, previewing footage from the recent incredible rescue of over 100 animals in Peru and Colombia.

All funds raised will go to a huge lion habitat construction program for over 30 lions rescued by Animal Defenders International (ADI) from circuses and flown home to South Africa. Huge ADI enclosures of natural bush are being built for the lions at Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary. You can add a donation to your ticket here, or bring with you to the screening.

This is a great opportunity to see the multi-award winning film on a big screen, to get an insight into the massive rescue in Peru, meet the people behind this work AND help animals! A feel-good and empowering film – a great night out.
