Operation Lion Ark. First we exposed the suffering; then we campaigned and secured a ban; and when the first circus closed we took all the animals to a wonderful new life. We raided every circus in Bolivia and rescued every animal. An entire animal circus industry closed down in a stroke with the most comprehensive enforcement operation the world has seen. We moved the lions to the US in the biggest air lift of its kind ever.
