One of our largest habitat construction programs is underway with the lion enclosures ADI is funding at Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary, South Africa. The forever homes for Leo, Muneca, Africa and Kiara, and for Coco, Rolex, and Chino, will be first. Next, will be the 'special needs' natural bush enclosure for José and Liso, and then homes for 22 more lions will follow. ADI's Operation Spirit of Freedom saw over 100 animals rescued from circuses and the illegal wildlife trade in Peru and Colombia. As a result of the huge rescue, in the space of just 18 months, ADI has constructed homes for over 40 monkeys of six different species, three bears, coatis, kinkajous, and bonding camps for over 30 lions. The bonding camps and main habitats together will cost around a quarter of a million dollars. So we need your help. At a time when the fate of lions and other animals is in the balance, it is more important than ever for work like this to show delegates at the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) Conference #CoP17 in Johannesburg the desperate lives and generational damage of these animals when they are stolen from the wild and used for human entertainment. This campaign, like before, has also shown governments how they can work with ADI to stamp out the suffering. Already, more are asking for our help. In two years we have eliminated circus suffering in Peru - the last part of this historic campaign is to give these lions who suffered so much a wonderful retirement. PLEASE GIVE WHAT YOU CAN.
