Urgent: Starving lions in Sudan need your help!
UPDATE: Our emergency team led by Dr. Amir Khalil has arrived on the scene to asses the state of the animals and provide aid to them. Our team of wildlife experts and experienced vets arrived in Sudan along with equipment and medication. They are evaluating the situation on-site, ensuring the lions are properly treated and able to recover from their ordeal. The lions are in urgent need of care and your support gives them hope for survival. We will continue to update as we receive information from our team on the scene.
Public outcry has ensued across the globe after images of 4 skeletal lions at a Sudan zoo went viral. The lions in the photos lay lifeless in their small and dirty concrete cells, with every bone in their body clearly visible the lions struggle to move and fight to stay alive.
Due to a lack of financial resources, the animals could no longer be fed adequately. A fifth lion at the park has already died as a result of the severe conditions.
You can help us save them!
Four Paws now a chance to enter the country and provide the animals with the urgently needed food and medical care.
Our teams are preparing to provide urgent medical treatment and proper food to the surviving lions at Al Qurashi Family Park zoo.
“We were shocked by the pictures of the gaunt lions. It was clear to us that we had to act quickly because the animals would not last much longer. As soon as we are on-site, we will provide the severely malnourished lions with proper food and medical care. The highest priority at the moment is to stabilize and improve the health condition of the animals, and determine long-term solutions for them,” - FOUR PAWS veterinarian and head of the emergency mission Dr. Amir Khalil.
