Thousands of you tuned in to watch Leo and Muñeca’s story on social media over the weekend. Torn apart by the circus and then reunited by ADI in two dramatic raids, hundreds of miles apart in Peru, our two senior lions (19 years old) enjoyed another Valentine’s Day at the ADI Wildlife Sanctuary, South Africa today. Sitting in the shade of a tree, as always together, it is hard to believe they weren’t always in Africa. Those years of abuse, bare cages, being forced apart, the days when Leo looked broken – alone and separated from his Muñeca – are long behind them. Instead, they can inspire us with their bravery, will to survive and, above all else, loyalty and devotion. Happy Valentine’s Day Leo and Muñeca.
This Valentine’s Day, adopt Leo and Muñeca to support their care so they can continue to be there for each other. It also makes a great meaningful gift for your loved one.
