ABOUT THIS LIVE FUNDRAISING EVENT
Travel with us to the distant corners of the earth during this special virtual fundraising event as we examine the impacts of our work on a global scale through three international rescue stories. We'll explore the incredible journey of twenty-two Moon Bears rescued from a decrepit bile farm in South Korea and escape the war-torn region of Odesa, Ukraine, with a pride of nine African Lions. We'll also be debuting our latest Voices of Freedom story featuring Tupak, the Spectacled Bear rescued from Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 2016.
See first-hand how the Sanctuary's global presence has saved countless lives in need and inspired local citizens, underground movements, and foreign governments to head off the captive wildlife problem, preventing these countries from ending up in the same crisis found here in America. This interactive online event will be broadcast live to the video player above once the event begins.

Budahshay the Tiger
Voices of Freedom
Premiered Live - July 19th, 2022
This event was produced by Stage2Studios and The Wild Animal Sanctuary for everyone who wanted to participate in the world premiere of our latest Voices of Freedom feature story - Budahshay The Tiger. Witness the incredible journey of two Tigers and one male African Lion that spent their entire lives together fighting adversity, but triumphed in the end as they become the first animals to live at The Wild Animal Refuge. We also revisited the story of another incredible rescue involving a Black Leopard named Jumanji - as well as debuted a special video that features our efforts in building the most natural and expansive habitats possible for the animals living at our 10,000+ acre Refuge in southern Colorado. If you were unable to watch the event live, we invite you to view the recorded version here.
Tiger King Rescue
Premiered Live - November 4th, 2021
This event was produced by Stage2Studios and The Wild Animal Sanctuary in response the hundreds of animals that had to be rescued from a number of the "Tiger King" characters - as well as the countless others that continue to wait for the day when they too will be freed from a life of exploitation and misery. Although the event only lasted 55 minutes, with the amazing help of thousands of generous viewers, we were able to raise over $600,000 for the animals! This truly incredible feat was due in part to the highly insightful content that was shared throughout the broadcast - but also due to the immense compassion that each viewer felt as the real story behind these Tiger Kingdoms came to light. If you were unable to watch the event live as it unfolded that evening, we invite you to view the recorded version here. Each animal's story remains immensely important to learn about, as well as pass on to others, so please take the time to watch the recording and share it with your friends, family and colleagues.
