IBB ZOO EMERGENCY RESCUE MISSION, Ibb, Yemen
July 2017 - ongoing
Combatting extinction, securing Ibb Zoo Lions fencing , offering a safe, humane asylum for our Taiz Zoo Big Cats and providing food and water relief, this current Rescue 'kills 2 birds with 1 stone'... These hungry Lions were escaping from their damaged open-range enclosures in desperate search of food and being shot dead by local villagers at Ibb zoo in destitute, war- stricken Yemen. One World Actors Animal rescues has now SAVED the 7 remaining Lions by building them a secure , spacious double enclosure with a roof to shelter them from the rain and sun....BUT now we've GOT to save them from starvation FAST!
" How can we possibly abandon these desperate Lions, Striped Hyenas, Ocelot, Sacred Hamadryas Baboons, Arabian Caracal, Camels, Horses, Geese, Donkeys, Mongoose and Arabian Partridge, left to starve at defunct Ibb Zoo in the midst of a brutal civil war? ... With your vital help, we can keep them alive with emergency food and water and secure the open-range enclosure for their own protection. By reviving Ibb Zoo we can then transfer some of the enduring Predators from overcrowded Taiz Zoo, south of Ibb and release them from the cruel confinement of their concrete prison cells to the open-range enclosure here at Ibb Zoo ! Dedicating my entire life since February 2016 to rescuing Yemen's iconic, endangered World Heritage animals at Taiz and Ibb Zoos, as well as running the Arabian Police Horses Rescue Mission in Sana'a, Yemen's capital and in Dhamar, One World Actors'-Animal Rescues’ President (and Team) remain committed to stand by my moral duty as a British Queen's Guide and rally all animal lovers around the Planet to urgently support this Animal 'red cross' for Yemen and save THESE brave and suffering war refugees !" - Kim Michelle
