The ADI Wildlife Sanctuary in South Africa was founded to provide a natural home when animals in circuses are banned. ADI has undertaken huge rescues to enforce bans, emptying every cage in Peru, Colombia, Bolivia and Guatemala. These animals cannot return to the wild, they are in-bred and physically and psychologically damaged by years of abuse, so since 2019, almost all of the circus lions and tigers from Guatemala, Colombia and Peru have come here. Our 455-acre sanctuary gives them a life as close to nature as possible, living with dignity and freedom in large habitats.
Follow ADI on social media to find out how we give abused animals back their lives and our work to secure the type of laws that brought these animals home.
