The rescue of our lion prides

Operation Lion Ark saw ADI’s Rescue Team carry out its most ambitious and complex rescue mission to date. The team traveled the length and breadth of Bolivia, covering thousands of miles, negotiating the seizure of an incredible 25 lions. The lions now roam huge enclosures at The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Colorado, U.S.A.
