THEY CALLED HIM “BLIND”, WE RENAMED HIM JOSEPH.
Joseph is a lovely old lion who has clearly been through the wars.
His vision is impaired by cataracts but thanks to improved diet in ADI’s care we have already seen improvements. Joseph is adored by the ADI team as he slowly explores his exercise enclosure at the ADI Spirit of Freedom Rescue Center in Peru. Our team monitors how he deals with obstacles, so we can make special preparations for his new home in Africa. In the picture he is really enjoying giving himself a good back-scratch against a pile of straw bales in the ADI rescue center. He’s calm and confident – one of those great, old indomitable lions. He will need special care but with your help he can enjoy a wonderful retirement at Emoya in South Africa.
