We were delighted that the acclaimed environmental journalist, Ian Michler participated in our LionAid concert on the 22nd August in central London by sending through a personal video message and a clip of the powerful Blood Lions documentary to share with all those who attended. This video message is now available on the LionAid Youtube channel. Click the link above to listen to the message and watch the electrifying trailer.
Ian will be co-hosting the UK Premiere of the Blood Lions documentary, together with the Born Free Foundation, which will be screened at the Royal Geographical Society on the 27th November. We are an Associate of Blood Lions are we are delighted that we will be on the Panel discussing the issues following the screening.
Blood Lions is an important film which “follows acclaimed environmental journalist and safari operator Ian Michler, and Rick Swazey, an American hunter, on their journey to uncover the realities about the multi-million dollar predator breeding and canned lion hunting industries in South Africa. It is a story that blows the lid off claims made by these operators in attempting to justify what they do. Last year alone over 800 captive lions were shot in South Africa, mostly by wealthy international hunters under conditions that are anything but sporting.”
Tickets can be purchased here and we urge you all to come along and participate in this important discussion.
