On Friday 16th, a neighboring property had set a fire as a ‘controlled’ burn and within 40 minutes they had lost control. A wall of flame surged through the northern perimeter of the sanctuary. ADIWS staff battled the flames on the hillside and got our animal residents into their safe zones. Neighbors also arrived with their fire fighters to assist.
The ADIWS team finally stopped the fire within yards of Sasha tiger and lions Tarzan and Tanya’s habitats. Our fire protocols worked and saved lives.
Our fire protocol requires that all the lions and tigers are immediately brought into their feeding camps and night houses, which are soaked with water. Every habitat has a hose, water supply and fire extinguisher, our team were also armed with beaters and blowers, high-pressure fire fighters on six vehicles (staff used their own vehicles) which drove into the flames and our system of firebreaks helped slow the blaze, allowing the team to steadily get control.
Up to 50 acres of the ADIWS have been left scorched, two vehicles, radios, hoses, solar panels and energisers for fences, water supply, security cameras and our perimeter fence have all been badly damaged. But every resident is safe. PLEASE GIVE URGENTLY FOR REPAIRS to equipment and vehicles, and to expand our water system around the habitats. Please help spread the word. donate.adiusa.org/sanctuary/ Show more
