Event description
#TEAMEARTH ~ a day of raising awareness for the plight of animals everywhere

About this Event

#TEAMEARTH is a day of conservation, raising awareness for animals both here in the UK & around the world. In a world that we claim more & more of, species all over are struggling as we move into THEIR homes & persecute them for not understanding that we think our needs are greater than theirs. In a world where not only are we displacing them from their homes, we are treating them as commodities, to 'trophy hunt', cull, ride, contain in zoo's, aquariums & circuses & to farm, inflicting the most hideous cruelty.

Our confirmed guest speakers so far

Ian Redmond OBE ~ Ape Alliance & understudy to Dian Fossey

Dominic Dyer ~ Badger Trust CEO

Richard Peirce ~ Conservationist & author of titles such as 'Cuddle Me ~ Kill Me'

'Giant Steps' 'The Poachers Moon' 'Nicole'

Alex C Rivera ~ Unchained director

Our confirmed screenings so far

Blood Lions, BRED FOR THE BULLET™ ~ Every single day in South Africa captive bred or tame lions continue to be killed in canned hunts and hundreds more are slaughtered annually for the lion bone trade to Asia.

BLOOD LIONS exposes the exploitation related to unethical and insidious practices associated with wildlife interactive tourism, including cub petting and walking with lions.

Unchained ~ needs to be seen. Its message, that through pragmatism and persistence, there is hope that ‘captive’ elephants will gain improved respect and welfare. Ultimately, there will be a transition away from abusive elephant training for ‘entertainment,’ burdening ‘tourists’ on their spines, to an ‘educated‘ tourist spectacle of herds of unchained ‘captive’ elephants to admire without intrusion; the elephants’ mahouts able to look on with pride, dignity and we hope at long last, a deeply felt mutual respect – a potential atonement indeed.

Beneficiary Charity

There will also be a raffle on the day ~ proceeds will go to Liberia Chimpanzee Rescue & Rehabilitation who are very close to my heart as they try to raise £2million to build a sanctuary for the baby chimps arriving all to regularly, as their families have been slaughtered for bush meat & they are sold into the illegal pet trade.
