See + Do East County Exotic Animal Rescue Reveals Inside Information About Exotic Animal Trade With Two Screenings Of Michael Webber’s Film
Thursday, April 29, 20210
San Diego’s only accredited big cat and bear sanctuary, Lions Tigers & Bears, is hosting two screenings of Michael Webber’s documentary “The Conservation Game” for the San Diego community.
“The Conservation Game” recently made its Santa Barbara Film Festival debut and is currently not available elsewhere. In the documentary, retired police officer Tim Harrison stumbles upon a bomb discovery when he suspects the world’s most famous conservationists may be secretly linked to the big cat trade.
The premiere screening will take place at Ultrastar Cinemas Mission Valley, Hazard Center on Friday, May 7, 2021 at 7 p.m. The $ 35 ticket price includes an exclusive screening of The Conservation Game and a panel of filmmakers and meets and greets the director, Michael Webber, Harrison, and others in the film.
The second screening will take place at the Lions Tigers & Bears in Alpine, Calif. On Saturday, May 8, 2021 starting at 5 p.m. The $ 50 ticket includes a tour with the rescued animals of Lions Tigers & Bears, pizza and refreshments, an exclusive screening of The Conservation Game and a panel of filmmakers and meet and greet the director.
“Our sanctuary is different from most zoos and pet stores – especially those featured in Netflix’s chaotic Tiger King docuseries – because we’re a strict contactless establishment,” said Bobbi Brink, Founder and Director of Lions Tigers & Bears . “This allows us to provide a safe and peaceful existence for our rescued animals, just as they would in the wild, and our extensive encounters and limited number of guests allow an appropriate distance for visitors for health and safety with a closer and a personal view of animals. “
The nonprofit exotic animal rescue organization, led by Brink, has coordinated the rescue of more than 600 big cats, bears, wolves and other exotic animals across the United States in need of permanent refuge and of lifetime homes in renowned sanctuaries including Lions Tigers & Bears.
