#ForeverInOurHearts. In 2020 we said #farewell to some dear friends, Lucho, Junior, Tilin, and Ricardo, we will never forget how they touched our lives and remember them here. #restinpeace #rescuedanimals ImageImageImageImage
LUCHO was saved from a small concrete pen during a dawn raid by #ADI on an #illegalzoo in Peru, in 2015. The friendly #spectacledbear enjoyed five precious years in the forest habitat we provided at @TaricayaE, where he loved to float on his back in his pool.
JUNIOR was #rescued by #ADI in 2014 from a #circus in Colombia, & was one of the 33 #lions we airlifted home to Africa. He was taken from us by cancer at about 9 years old, but got to roam his piece of Africa with brothers Bumba & Zeus at the #ADIWildliifeSanctuary.

#1 Magic moments 2020: The January arrival of 17 #lions & #tigers #rescued from #circuses in Guatemala at the #ADIWildlifeSanctuary in South Africa, marked more than just a wonderful new life for those animals. It meant animal circuses had been eliminated in another country. ImageImageImageImage
During #ADI’s grueling 18-month operation to enforce the ban, we faced threats, mobs & abuse & finally had to quickly evacuate & relocate the temporary rescue center.
The flight was beset with difficulties – countries refusing landing permits, extra costs, & special security measures at the temporary rescue center, gave us a very long haul with stops in Mexico, Belgium & aircraft change in Qatar for the final flight to Johannesburg.
