Lion Rescue

A True Story

By Sara Starbuck

  • Paperback
  • £5.99

Keep wildlife in the wild! Support the Born Free charity and join Virginia McKenna and her team behind the scenes in this full colour gift book about an amazing lion rescue.

Every year Born Free helps hundreds of animals around the world. This is the story of one of their incredible rescues . . . Meet Bella, the lioness with a broken heart, and Simba, the captive king of the jungle. And learn how all animals that are born free should live free.

Simba was born in a French zoo and was later bought by an animal trainer. For many years he lived in cramped captivity.

When Bella was young, she was used as a photographer's prop and then later lived in a run-down zoo in Romania. Because she had been taken from her mother at such a young age and fed a poor diet, she sadly developed a weak spine and back legs.

Luckily Born Free could come to the rescue. Now Simba and Bella both live in Malawi where they have become great companions.

Join Born Free behind the scenes of one of their real life rescues.

For the next five years they were kept at a small dolphinarium on the Mediterranean coast. Then they were taken to southern Turkey where they were kept in a small, crumbling pool. Luckily this came to Born Free's attention and a team of experts flew to Turkey to rescue Tom and Misha. After so long in captivity the dolphins had to be taught basic survival skills - like how to avoid sharks and catch fish. After nearly two years of careful preparation the gate to their sea pen was finally opened for the first time and the two dolphins swam to freedom.Now Born Free invite you to share in their incredible story.
