Join us in the West End of London for a gala screening of award-winning documentary Lion Ark with the rescue team, ADI’s celebrity supporters and the filmmakers. Screening followed by Q&A and then a special fundraiser where you can meet the rescue team, enjoy vegan food and wine and hear about our rescue mission happening right now in Peru.
Defying the will of the public, Conservative MP Christopher Chope has once again blocked the bill to ban wild animals in circuses, leaving Britain trailing behind the growing number of countries that have banned such acts. Please join ADI in calling on Government to take action to enable the bill to pass.
ADI has emptied the last circus of its wild animals in Peru! 30 lions, 9 monkeys and other animals have been rescued during Operation Spirit of Freedom, concluding a collaborative effort with the Peruvian Government to enforce their circus ban, passed in 2012 after a 2-year investigation and 5-year campaign by ADI.
New footage filmed by ADI and reported by the Daily Mirror has revealed the dismal daily lives of the lions and tigers from Peter Jolly’s Circus when the season comes to an end. The big cats have been trucked to Scotland by their owner and are still on display to the public.
Your chance to see Lion Ark in the UK. These screenings will raise funds for ADI’s Operation Spirit of Freedom rescue in Peru and create awareness about the UK circus ban. Share, buy tickets, bring your friends, and if you can help volunteer at or help promote screenings, please get in touch.
ADI has saved 5 more capuchin monkeys. Victims of the exotic pet trade, and probably torn from their families in the wild, the monkeys were confiscated from illegal traffickers by the police. ADI now has in our care 30 lions, 9 monkeys, and a tortoise! We urgently need funds for the relocation of the monkeys and construction of the new home.
Join President Jan Creamer and ADI celebrity supporters at the Lion Ark Gala Screening on Saturday 6th December in London’s Leicester Square.
Cheer on the lions as you follow their journey to freedom.
You can also meet the rescuers and Lion Ark team at our post-screening Fundraiser, with vegan wine & food and of course great company. All funds raised will go towards our lifesaving Operation Spirit of Freedom rescue mission in Peru.
A night to remember for the animals!
ADI secured the Bolivia animal circus ban, then closed down every animal circus and saved every animal - 29 lions, monkeys, horses, a baboon, a coati mundi. Find out more about our rescues and the animals in our care
