Rescue documentary Lion Ark – now available to stream

ADI’s Lion Ark movie is streaming on EarthStream for the first time, and available on iOS, Android, Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Roku. Every subscription helps raise funds for our rescued animals at the ADI Wildlife Sanctuary.

Lion Ark is a feel-good, empowering story of the most ambitious and daring animal rescue of its kind. ADI secured a ban on animal circuses in Bolivia following a two-year undercover investigation across South America. Then the law had to be enforced. Across vast, hostile terrains the illegal circuses were tracked down, the animals saved, brought to safety, and reached a joyous finale as 25 lions are airlifted to freedom in the US.

With no facilities for many of the banned circus animals in Bolivia, ADI undertook an unprecedented operation, setting up a temporary rescue unit to receive animals, raiding every circus, and emptying every cage. ADI rescued and relocated 29 lions and rehomed monkeys and other animals in Bolivia. The success of Operation Lion Ark and its popularity triggered animal circus bans throughout Latin America and beyond. Since then, ADI has carried out similar missions in Colombia, Peru (rescuing over 100 animals and flying 33 lions to South Africa), and Guatemala (relocating over 20 lions and tigers to the US and South Africa). The ADI Wildlife Sanctuary is built for our circus survivors and others.
