Lions in Chile in Need of Rescue

To Whom it May Concern:
I am writing you in behalf of our non-profit interdisciplinary organization of animal protection named Ecópolis Viña del Mar (Chile) and in the frame of our campaign called “No More Circus with Animals”. I am seeking for your support in the search for a definite and adequate home for three African lions (two females and one male) that was confiscated to a traveling circus in a Chilean city.  

Thanks to the combined efforts of professionals, volunteers and different organizations of animal protection and in coordination with the Brigade of Crimes against the environment (BIDEMA), we have achieved the confiscation of three African lions that was in possession of the " Circo Americano" in the south of Chile. These feline was in deplorable conditions, permanently exhibited to spectators, in evident malnutrition, and with a high level of stress because of the environmental conditions of the circus whose traveling condition is not compatible with the standards of animal wellbeing.

Our organization would like to know if it is possible to count with your help, a definite home for these lions, where he can run, socialize and act as lion. We do not want to see him behind bars any more, even if he has food and water. Our goal is purely ethical and no person or organization is earning money with this campaign.
Attached photos.
Hoping that we can count with your support, best regards,

Paola Castillo
