Saving over 30 lions from their circus cages was an unprecedented rescue operation. However, after ten years, Animal Defenders International had done it: the big cats were free. Now rescuers sat back and watched the lions step on to their homeland for the very first time.
Animal Defenders International (ADI) is appropriately named, with branches in the U.K, Columbia and the USA. Since its founding in 1990, ADI has worked hard to defend animal rights. In fact, it was responsible for passing an animal protection law in Columbia and Peru.
