Challenge

Eastern Europe have some very outdated regulations around the keeping of captive wildlife. In many instances animals have been kept in shocking circumstances with little regard for animal rights. As people have become more and more aware of this there is pressure on institutions to improve the circumstances of these animals. We work to rescue and relocate animals to have some quality of life.

Solution

We have been actively rescuing and relocating animals all over Ukraine. The long term solution is to raise awareness and educate people on these issues, some thing that we have been doing for some years. Ultimately we aim to end animal cruelty of captive animals through the removal of these animals and by changing the attitude of the public who support it.

Long-Term Impact

In the 2019 UN report it, scientists state that there are 1 million species threatened with extinction. This required drastic action by humans everywhere. Rescuing these lions brings about trans-formative thinking in people who would not ordinarily been aware of this global issue.
