After a 6-year campaign Colombia has banned wild animals from both static and travelling circuses. ADI launched our Stop Circus Suffering South America campaign following a two-year undercover investigation. The circuses have two years to comply. ADI stands ready to assist the Colombian Government with rescue and relocation of the animals.
Important changes to animal protection legislation can take several attempts – all the more reason to keep trying! DON’T GIVE UP NOW – keep sending messages to your congressional representatives, reminding them of the importance of a ban on wild animals in circuses.
We believe that if fair boards get the facts about elephant rides, and the public speaks out against the cruelty, we can convince them to end elephant rides. Be a voice in your community! A thoughtful, well-written letter goes a long way. Email email@example.com for tips, talking points, and more.
Wherever animal circuses perform, we need people to speak out about the inherent suffering and educate circus goers that they are helping to finance animal cruelty.
Bolivia is about the size of Texas AND California COMBINED so when, at the start of Lion Ark, Jan Creamer says that the circuses "are spread all over Bolivia" it reveals the huge scale of the challenge ahead.

An undercover investigation by ADI led to a ban on animal circuses in Bolivia. People thought that was it, but most circuses defied the law. Lion Ark, currently in production, tells the story of how the team that secured the evidence of animal suffering returned to track down the circuses and rescue every animal; with a stunning finale as 25 lions are airlifted to safety in Colorado. A unique behind the scenes record of front line animal rescue, the heartache and the joy. A story of bravery, compassion, camaraderie and determination and a country that said ‘no’ to cruelty.
