Last week, the Colombian Congress passed Bill 244,2012 to end the use of wild animals in both static and travelling circuses, after a six-year public campaign following the release of critical evidence of animal suffering collected by investigators from ADI.

ADI is the Colombian Government’s chosen NGO to coordinate all animal rescue efforts and involvement by animal groups in the rescue and relocation of the animals. As such, we are working with the Colombian government on regulations and any animal seizures resulting from the ban.

News of the ban has traveled across the world. The following is a list of media outlets that have covered the story:

Colombia

United States

United Kingdom

France

Peru

Uruguay

Mexico

Kenya

Nigeria
