After travelling hundreds of miles over the Andes mountains, from the small zoo she had lived in for years, Dominga is now in her forest sanctuary home.
A ban on wild animal circuses was first promised over a decade ago. 94.5% of the public want to see the ban implemented, and 98% of MPs stood on a manifesto promise to do so – yet these outdated and unwanted acts are still legal in the UK.
MA Senator Tarr has introduced SD.2002 - the bill to prohibit traveling wild and exotic animal acts. ADI was honored to work with State Senator Bruce Tarr and local advocates on the bill, which reflects increasing public recognition that these acts are both cruel and dangerous.
PA State Senator Daylin Leach has reintroduced his bill to prohibit traveling wild and exotic animal acts, stating “the public will not tolerate this unconscionable cruelty any longer.”
An angry mob, a 19-hour mountain journey, a specially-chartered international flight: Just three of the obstacles we overcame to take brothers Simba and Rey out of misery in the circus, home to Africa.

After travelling hundreds of miles over the Andes mountains, from the small zoo she had lived in for years, the ADI team loads Dominga for a boat ride along the Madre de Dios River and then she is released into her new enclosure. Spectacled bear Dominga lost almost all of her fur due to stress after her sister died. Her new life starts in ADI’s care at Taricaya Ecological Reserve today, next door to Cholita (another bald bear rescued by ADI). PLEASE SHARE HER STORY!
ADI urgently needs funds to care for the animals we rescue, including bears Dominga, Cholita, Lucho and Sabina - CAN YOU HELP? EVERY LITTLE BIT MAKES THE WORLD OF DIFFERENCE FOR THESE ANIMALS.
You can adopt Dominga too!
Having secured and helped enforce an animal circus ban in Bolivia, saving all of the animals, ADI return to Latin America to assist the authorities in Peru and Colombia. Over 100 animals have been rescued during Operation Spirit of Freedom with 33 lions heading home to Africa.
