The Campaign – Blood Lions™ BLOOD LIONS OFFICIAL TRAILER 2015

ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN

Captive bred lions are killed in canned hunts and slaughtered for the lion bone trade. Join Blood Lions’ call to action to end these practices.

When travelling in South Africa, please THINK before you VISITCUDDLEWALKVOLUNTEER or SHOOT.

The Blood Lions Goal is to bring an end to canned hunting and the exploitative breeding of lions and other predators on farms across South Africa.

The award winning Blood Lions® feature documentary premiered in 2015. At the same time the Blood Lions Campaign was launched to create global awareness around the captive predator breeding, canned hunting and lion bone industries as well as the related exploitative wildlife interactive tourism practices.

Furthermore, the campaign encourages viewers of the film, visitors to Africa and followers on social media to make responsible choices about visiting or supporting wildlife interactive tourism facilities and activities. Through awareness and by reducing demand for exploitative products, the campaign aims to bring an end to the exploitation of captive-bred wild animals.

The Campaign is anchored by the Blood Lions® film, a strong and active digital media platform, and various specific campaigns with key international partners.

 

Our Strategy

The Blood Lions team, which includes you, will plan and implement campaigns of awareness and action aimed at the following stakeholders:

1.       The general public

2.       Government (both local and international) and provincial decision-makers

3.       The scientific and conservation community (NGO’s)

4.       The tourism industry

5.       The professional hunting bodies

6.       The volunteer agencies

 

What You Need To Know

Breeding predators in cages and confined areas is not only about canned or captive hunting – there are a number of additional revenue streams and none have anything to do with conservation.

Before deciding whether to visit, volunteer or hunt we ask that you consider the following:

 

On Breeding & Canned Hunting

  1. There are almost 300 farms and breeding facilities holding somewhere between 8 000 and 10 000 predators in captivity. The vast majority of these animals, possibly as many as 9 000, are lions.
  2. At the time of the film’s launch, over 800 captive-bred lions were being killed annually in South Africa by trophy hunters, and increasingly, canned or captive hunting is seen as unethical and unsportsmanlike.
  3. ‘Canned hunting’ refers to the shooting of captive bred and/or tame animals in confined areas. It covers other definitions such as captive hunting, high-fence hunting and ranch hunting.
  4. For many people, there is no difference between canned hunting and the terms captive or ranch hunting that has been introduced by the authorities and professional hunting bodies in an attempt to get away from the negative image associated with canned hunting.
  5. There is a growing group of professional hunters and organizations completely opposed to the practices of canned or captive hunting. We have already seen canned hunting organizations expelled from hunting bodies in Europe and the USA, and they are no longer allowed to exhibit at hunting fairs. We have also seen the South African hunting organization split.
  6. Unless under the auspices of an authentic team of scientists and conservationists, breeding lions and other predators in cages or enclosed areas has no conservation value whatsoever.
  7. There is a lack of data to support the claim that hunting captive bred lions takes pressure off wild lions. We do know that wild lion numbers across Africa continue to decline, and that wherever it remains possible to hunt these, demand for permits remains high.
  8. Canned or captive hunting has merely opened up an entirely new market for people that would not have been able to afford a wild hunt.
  9. Conservationists and animal welfare experts remain deeply concerned about the breeding practices used and the general conditions that exist on many of South Africa’s lion farms and breeding facilities.
  10. Given the growth trends in predator breeding since 1999, it is forecast there could be as many as 12 000 to 15 000 lions and other predators on farms by 2020.

On Volunteerism & Conservation

1.       Very few, if any of the private lion farms and predator breeding facilities in South Africa can be regarded as genuine conservation undertakings as they do not work in conjunction with recognized lion ecologists and scientists or any of the global predator conservation agencies.

2.       Most are simply breeding or holding predators for a variety of commercial purposes and making use of volunteers has become one of the most lucrative revenue streams. Some facilities are earning in excess of US$100 000 in some months from their volunteer programmes alone.

3.       There has not been a successful lion reintroduction programme using captive bred and reared lions in South Africa. Lion conservationists warn that captive bred lions are not suitable for reintroduction programmes.

4.       There are only a handful of authentic wildlife sanctuaries in South Africa and they do not breed, trade (they mostly receive animals rather than going out to acquire them) or interact with the animals in any way.

5.       South Africa has no need to be breeding lions for release into wilderness areas. In addition, if there was such a need, using hand-reared or human-imprinted and genetically contaminated lions is not an acceptable way of doing this.

6.       Taking lion cubs away from their mothers is not a natural process and is only done to exploit the animals and you as the visitor or volunteer.

7.       Very few, if any of the cubs you pet and cuddle have been ‘abandoned’ or rescued in the wild.

8.       Using breeding farms as an educational facility is like using fast-food outlets as a venue to teach about nutrition and good eating habits. In other words, breeding farms and petting facilities do not serve any educational purpose. Instead, they promote the cycle of breeding and captivity.

9.       In general, the quality and validity of information being given out to visitors on South Africa’s predator farms and facilities is poor. It is also confusing vital conservation messages and priorities.

10.   These operations are taking in significant sums of money, which in some ways is a misdirection of valuable conservation funding.

11.   If you do find yourself on a breeding farm or predator facility, be sure to ask the following questions:

·         Do they offer any activities based on animal and human interaction?

·         If it claims to be a sanctuary, do they offer life-long care for the animals?

·         Are they trading in animals?

·         Where did all the animals come from and where do some of them go?

·         Who is their recognized predator ecologist or scientist?

·         Have any of their animals been released into the wild? And if so, where and when?

12.   Before enrolling as a volunteer or going as a visitor, check the social media sites and blogs for comments and feedback on the particular farm or facility.

On the Lion Bone and Other Trade Options

1.       The lion bone trade is a relatively new revenue stream for the breeders and farmers and has come about as lion bones are now being used as an alternative to tiger bones in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

2.       Over 1 000 lions are killed annually for the burgeoning lion bone trade. This is up from 287 carcasses exported in 2010.

3.       As has been the case with various other wildlife species, a legal trade promotes demand and a parallel illegal market. This in turn puts pressure on wild lion populations.

4.       Lions and other predators are being exported to private collectors, mostly in the Middle and Far East. These collectors are keeping the animals under appalling conditions, often confined to small spaces within the boundaries of major cities.

5.       As the demand for lion bone increases, so will the intensive breeding practices. In time, lions may well end up being bred under agricultural conditions.

6.       Although ‘tiger bone wine’ has been used in TCM for at least 1 000 years or more, there are no known medicinal properties.

7.       Often under the guise of scientific and/or research purposes, predators are also being sold to private and public zoos around the world, many of which are in a poor state.

 

By supporting these facilities and activities, either as a day visitor, volunteer or hunter you are not contributing to conservation. Instead, you are party to spreading the misinformation and the horrors some of the world’s most iconic wild species are facing.

 

Our Campaign Progress

The Blood Lions team have already made significant progress:

1.       We have filmed and produced Blood Lions, the first feature documentary that looks at all aspects of predator breeding in South Africa.

2.       We have been able to get the film accepted into various film festivals around the world.

3.       This website has become a global platform to raise awareness around the issues as well as acting as a co-ordinated call for action.

4.       We have addressed both the Australian and European Parliaments on the issues and have briefed decision-makers, conservationists and scientists in both regions. As a result of the visit to Australia, that country has become the first to ban the importation of lion trophies into the country.

5.       We have started assembling a coalition of conservation, tourism and scientific NGO’s and other organizations against the practices.

We have undertaken to be partners for change with various Ministries in the South African government.

The NSPCA has huge animal welfare concerns for the animals exploited in the captive predator and canned hunting industry in South Africa. This industry is unregulated, uncontrolled and is responsible for untold cruelty. It is a tragedy that our wild animals are reduced to profit making machines. Coupled with this members of public are unwittingly encouraging and supporting this cruelty, so it is vital that the public are aware of the truth behind the industry so they can make informed decisions and hopefully choose not to support such an unethical industry.

Sr.Ainsley Hay, Manager, NSPCA Wildlife Protection Unit


Breeding magnificent wild creatures like lions in camps so that they can be slaughtered for ego and money is unconscionable and should be outlawed.  Lions have the right to live in the wild and to continue playing their unique role within the ecological communities of Africa.  The continued existence of the canned hunting industry is a moral outrage that diminishes us all.  This important film shines a light into the dark corners of this ugly business.

Cormac Cullinan, Cullinan & Associates Incorporated


Cruel, barbaric, macabre – all words used by Australian MPs about lion farming and the canned lion hunting industry in SA.  Our campaign was glad to be able to assist and participate in a full length documentary that aims to expose a brutal industry whose whole business model is routine, egregious cruelty to helpless animals – for fun.

Chris Mercer, Founder, CACH (Campaign Against Canned Hunting)


Captive lions have long been a blemish on South Africa’s wildlife and tourism landscape and their tragic story needed to be exposed before these practices negatively impacted on Brand South Africa. Congratulations to all involved in taking the time and making this happen.

Colin Bell, Tourism consultant and author of “Africa’s Finest”


“As a travel and conservation based organization, we find the “Blood Lions” documentary deeply disturbing. Despite being hard to watch, we urge people to get out there and see it. It is important to shed light on the dark and corrupt business of rearing lions for the purposes of hunting, in hopes of making a positive change. As we polled our membership, we found that individually each of our companies have chosen to stop booking all activities that contribute to this industry.”

 

The Safari Professionals – 30 Tour Operators based in the US and Canada


South Africa’s failure to address the canned hunting industry has emboldened those who make a living out of the death of lions bred, raised and slaughtered on a ‘no kill, no fee’ basis. The canned hunting industry is unnatural, unethical and unacceptable. It delivers compromised animal welfare and zero education. It undermines conservation and creates a moral vacuum now inhabited by the greed and grotesque self-importance of those who derive pleasure in the taking of life.

Blood Lions lays bare the truth behind the canned hunting industry that, far from contributing to the future survival of the species, may, in fact, accelerate extinction in the wild, leaving behind a trail  littered with rotting corpses of its helpless and hopeless victims.

Will Travers OBE, President Born Free Foundation


The Marchig Animal Welfare Trust, in providing support for the making of this Documentary, does so in the firm belief that it is important that the true facts behind captive lion breeding and canned lion hunting in South Africa, is brought to the attention of a global audience in order to create awareness which in turn will lead to much needed change.

Les Ward MBE, Chairman, The Marchig Animal Welfare Trust


This is a timely, courageous as well as a deeply disturbing documentary. It is at the same time, a voice for the wild and the voiceless … of saying “NO MORE!” to that terrible triad of financial opportunism, deceit and indifference to the non-human animal by those claiming to be conservationists.

Ian McCallum – Author, poet, psychiatrist and naturalist


With the constant pressure on wildlife, every effort must be made to keep our last vestiges of natural fauna and flora protected.    Canned hunting of any kind, along with the related consequences, must be condemned by humanity as not only a travesty of nature but also an utterly inhumane practise.   Taming lion cubs only to later hunt them is an utterly inhumane practice.   It is pseudo-hunting, a complete sham and does not even qualify as hunting on a sustainable use basis.   Wildlife conservation has to evolve into practices that are ethical, humanitarian and sustainable. This will not be achieved if there is not real and fair community involvement which has not been part of the hunting fraternity’s evolution.

Yvette Taylor, Executive Director, The Lawrence Anthony Earth Organisation


“Canned lion ‘hunting’ is nothing less than a bargain basement opportunity for foreign hunters to engage in one of South Africa’s most sordid practices. Hunting of captive bred lions entirely dependent on human fingerprints from cub to trophy is immoral, unethical and against all animal welfare concerns. The fact that it still continues as profitable commerce is a damning statement against all of us who have not properly engaged to snuff it out. Blood Lions is a good start to bring change.”

Dr Pieter Kat – Director: LionAid

什麼是二胎房貸?房屋貸款 / 二順位(二胎)什麼是二順位房貸? 房地產抵押,又稱樓宇按揭。是抵押的一種,債務人交出房地產產權作借款保証,而債權人信任物業價值,若還錢供款出問題,出現法拍屋,債權人會沒收物權及轉賣折現,補償損失。 二順位房屋貸款亦稱二胎, 就是當該房屋在之前已向銀行進行第一次房屋貸款後,用原房屋再向另一家銀行, 進行對該標的殘值的再抵押借款, 房屋貸款抵押設定出現第2順位債權人,即為二胎房貸。 通常第一順位抵押的貸款成數越低,第二順位可貸金額越高,但是因為承受二順位貸款的銀行所承擔的風險較高,所以相對的利率也會較高。 二胎房貸還款的時間較短,約3~7年,且無寬限期, 且隔年申報綜所稅時無法以房貸科目抵稅。 二胎流程 沒有一順位, 就沒有二順位, 對銀行來說, 第一順位的債權抵押風險是最小的, 因為第一順位的債權抵押通常不會高過抵押物(房屋)的價值。但對設定在第二順位以後的債權, 風險自然會比較高, 因此貸款利率也會較高, 不少銀行甚至把二順位房貸當作「信用貸款」的方式來放款, (利率較高、年限較短等)。 銀行房貸/房屋二胎/二胎增貸/金主直營 - 歡迎來電(店)0939171627 為何「二位房貸」應擺在最後選項? 事實上, 「二順位房貸」在銀行的貸款產品中, 並不討喜, 因為許多貸款產品都可以取代「二順位貸款」,例如: 既有房貸增貸 / 透支型 / 理財型房貸 / 信用貸款 若要申請「二順位房貸」, 建議先自以上產品來挑選申請 , 「二順位房貸」的選擇排序應該在最後。例如選擇信用貸款,但其利率不見得比二胎房貸低,應該多方面比較。 二順位房貸流程跟房貸申請相同 ; 需付出代書、地政規費、設定抵押權 ; 利率卻不是房貸利率(1.5%~3%)而是信貸利率(4%~10%以上),繳款年限又短(最多7年),事實上產品CP值頗低... 而且許多銀行授信準則都很嫌棄有二胎借款紀錄的貸款人。 使用「二順位房貸」的情況:但二胎房貸還是有其市場性例如以下情況 < 情況一> 原貸銀行無法增貸 有資金需求需要增貸時, 原貸銀行(簡稱A銀行)認為沒有增貸空間, 另一間銀行(簡稱B銀行)認為有增貸空間, 不過礙於合約可能無法轉貸至B銀行 , 此時B銀行願意提供二順位貸款。 < 情況二 > 無法貸出信用貸款 因為信用貸款有貸款總額「不得逾月薪22倍」的法令限制, 所以若本身負債比已高到無法再借出信用貸款、或是信用記錄有瑕疵、且原房貸銀行也無法增貸的情況下, 是可以考慮申請「二順位房貸」。  嚴格說起來, 「二順位房貸」就是「有抵押的信用貸款」。在銀行的眼中通常貸款人辦理其他類型的貸款都申請困難 , 才會使用「二順位房貸」。 < 情況三 > 民間二順位、二胎 在此我們並不方便探究「非銀行」的民間二順位、二胎貸款。 不過申辦仍要注意相關利率及抵押權權設定情況、也要小心未來可能塗銷困難的情況。因為對銀行來說, 已有民間二順位設定的擔保品, 轉售後要再向銀行申請增貸、轉貸等都是會被限制無法承作的 。請謹慎使用!! 民間二胎-旺來代書借款,金主,二胎,房屋二胎,房屋代償 如果您名下不動產有與民間金主配合,我們可提供兩個更優惠的方案供您參考: 1.將現有民間二胎轉至一般銀行房貸利率 流程:專屬配合銀行估價→收入及負債狀況評估→特約代書配合代墊清償民間→銀行房貸撥款完成 2.民間二胎轉金主,一樣為房屋二胎但直接與金主借款省去其他手續與仲介費 流程:金主團隊免費估價→增額或降息評估回報→代償舊房屋二胎→增額降息轉貸完成 房屋貸款滿一年後如有急需資金周轉,即可申辦二胎房貸,但礙於卡債風暴後銀行緊縮銀根、門檻調高,使得正常繳款的房貸戶,仍然無法像原行庫申貸二胎房貸。~在此~旺來代書提供您另一個安心的融資周轉管道,無論您的信用是否正常或是信用瑕疵,只要您房貸繳款正常,無被法院查封或者假扣押之狀況,就可以向旺來代書辦理借款融資。 提供金主直營,土地貸款,土地融資,代償當舖,銀行代辦,土地借錢,建地貸款,農牧用地,土地持分,銀行二胎,農地持分,不動產抵押,都市計劃地,工業用地,魚塭借錢,養地借款,代償高利貸,公園綠地,農地借錢,田地借款,林地融資,地價指數,2胎,二胎,土地二胎,不動產代書,二胎代償,民間二胎。銀行等全方位的銀行貸款資訊一次搞定貸款麻煩事! 二順位房貸,金主直營,2胎,二胎,土地二胎,二胎代償,民間二胎,持分二胎,土地借錢,房屋貸款,二胎房貸,土地融資,銀行房貸利率,民間房貸,代償融資,軍公教房貸,房子二胎,銀行代辦,土地借錢,房貸轉貸,土地持分借款,公寓平房,銀行二胎,民間代償,房貸全額貸,農地持分借款,我要借錢門路,不動產抵押,房貸問題,三胎代償,都市計劃地,工業用地,農會房貸利息,魚塭養地借款,代償高利貸,銀行房貸比較,我要辦房貸,漁塭綠地,民宿貸款,農地借錢,銀行房貸二胎,建地借款,辦公大樓,房貸增貸,田地借款,林地融資,房屋借款,代償當舖,工商週轉,企業金融借款,私人借貸,工業住商貸款,房屋實價登錄,房價指數,租金繳房貸,房貸二胎,代書借錢,國宅貸款,農舍貸款。房屋貸款,二胎房貸,銀行房貸利率,民間房貸,代償融資,軍公教房貸,房子二胎,銀行代辦,房貸轉貸,公寓平房,銀行二胎,民間代償,房貸全額貸,我要借錢門路,不動產抵押,房貸問題,三胎代償,都市計劃地,農會房貸利息,代償高利貸,銀行房貸比較,我要辦房貸,民宿貸款,農會借錢,銀行房貸二胎,辦公大樓,房貸增貸,房屋借款,代償當舖,工商週轉,企業借款,私人借貸,工業住商貸款,房屋實價登錄,房價指數,租金繳房貸,2胎,二胎,房屋二胎,二胎代償,不動產代書,民間二胎,房貸二胎,代書借錢,國宅貸款,農舍貸款。土地貸款,土地融資,銀行房貸利率,代償融資,銀行代辦,土地借錢,建地貸款,農牧用地,土地持分借款,銀行二胎,民間代償,農地持分借款,我要借錢門路,不動產抵押,三胎代償,都市計劃地,工業用地,農會房貸利息,魚塭借錢,養地借款,代償高利貸,公園綠地,民宿貸款,農地借錢,銀行土地二胎,建地借款,房貸增貸,田地借款,林地融資,農地借款,代償當舖,工商週轉,企業借款,私人借貸,工業住商貸款,房屋實價登錄,地價指數,2胎,二胎,土地二胎,不動產代書,二胎代償,民間二胎,持分二胎,土地借錢。How to loan,How to lend money,How to Get a Loan,How to borrow money,融資借貸,快速借錢平台,小額貸款,小額週轉,小額借錢,資金周轉,資金貸款,借錢方式,買車換現金,民間信貸,個人信貸,融資貸款,民間貸款,銀行貸款,公司貸款,企業貸款,刷卡換現金,中小企業貸款,大額貸款,鉅額貸款,整合負債,資金貸款,資金借款,小額借款,公司周轉,金錢困難,合法貸款,借錢門路,軍公教貸款,婦女貸款,如何借錢,如何貸款,借錢注意,合法借錢,安全借錢,借錢周轉,馬上領現金,如何借錢不還,當日拿現金,當日拿錢,馬上拿錢,缺錢,借錢週轉,急用錢,急用金,家庭補助金,上學補助金,勞工補助金,沒錢,當舖借款.本利攤還,利率低,利息低,機車一二胎,汽車一二胎,房屋貸款,土地貸款,房地貸款,房屋一二胎,土地一二胎,土地一二胎,房屋借錢,土地借錢,房屋借款,土地借款,房地借款,合法借錢,合法借款,資金需求,現金需求,現金週轉,企業資金,1111找工作,需要錢,現拿現金,現金免求人,104人力銀行,信用卡換現,刷卡換現,小額現金週轉,免卡貸款,賣手機,中小企業貸款,機車換錢,非詐騙,防詐騙,信用卡貸款,沒有錢,繳不起,額度高,信用狀況,信用不好,法扣,協商,授權異常,強停,急借錢,當日撥款,當日拿錢,老客戶續約,勞保貸款,薪轉貸款,薪資轉帳,找金主或找借錢客戶,借錢,救急,借款,借貸,融資,房地二胎貸款,貸款借錢網站,借錢管道,2胎,二胎,二胎代書,二胎利率,二胎房貸,二胎房貸利率,二胎貸款,企業融資,企業貸款,土地,農地借錢,土地貸款,房屋貸款率利,房屋貸款額,房貸利率,房貸額度,個人土地貸款,個人房貸,信用,信用卡,信用貸款,信用貸款率利,信用貸款額,信貸利率,信貸額度,銀行信用貸款,銀行信貸,債務,創業融資,創業貸款,增貸,小額信貸,建地,建地貸款,房屋二胎,房屋二胎利率,房屋二胎銀行,房屋貸款,房屋貸款率利最低銀行,房貸二胎,房貸利率,房貸增貸,授信銀行,支票貼現,民間二胎,汽車借款,汽車貸款,汽車貸款率利多少,貸款,車貸,車貸利息,車貸利率,車貸試算。找金主或找借錢客戶,當舖借錢,救急現金,銀行借款,小額借貸,當舖融資,房地二胎貸款,貸款借錢不還,金主借錢管道,借錢網。基隆房貸|新北市土地|台北銀行|桃園房地|新竹房屋|苗栗農地|台中房屋|彰化銀行|南投建地|雲林增貸|嘉義轉貸|台南借錢|高雄借款|屏東貸款|花蓮房地|宜蘭林地|台東貸款房地產名詞解釋,房屋二胎貸款,房屋二胎免費估貸,房屋實價登錄,商業銀行貸款,銀行二胎,銀行信貸,貸款試算,銀行貸款利率,信貸申辦,成功案例,民間房貸,土地貸款評估,租金繳房貸,貸款QA,私人借錢,代書貸款知識,整合負債,信貸利息,信貸利率,小額信貸,小額信貸利率比較,信用貸款,信用卡代償,現金卡代償,卡債整合,負債協商,房子借錢,銀行房貸利率,中古車貸款,代辦銀行信貸、房貸二胎,房貸行情,房屋二胎利率,房價指數,勞工貸款,農民貸款,軍公教房貸,企業融資,公司週轉,青年創業貸款,婦女創業貸款,微型創業貸款,初創貸款,股東貸款,銀行代辦房貸,民間信用貸款,代償當舖,民間代書,理財諮詢服務,理財知識庫,詢問房屋土地貸款,尋找代辦業者,汽車借款,企業金融二胎,房貸全額貸款。
