BLOOD LIONS FILM SCREENING

UMAPS and Wildlife Conservation Society will be collaborating for the viewing of Blood Lions!

Blood Lions follows acclaimed environmental journalist and safari operator Ian Michler, and Rick Swazey, an American hunter, on their journey to uncover the realities about the multi-million dollar predator breeding and canned lion hunting industries in South Africa.
It is a story that blows the lid off claims made by these operators in attempting to justify what they do. Last year alone over 800 captive lions were shot in South Africa, mostly by wealthy international hunters under conditions that are anything but sporting.
The film shows in intimate detail how lucrative it is to breed lions, and how the authorities and most professional hunting and tourism bodies have become complicit in allowing the industries to flourish.

The film will be followed by a Q&A with Donalea Patman, Founder of For the Love of Wildlife.

The event is free and food will be provided! So come long and enjoy a great film and some food.

When: 6:30PM Thursday, 11 May

Where: Laby Theatre (Room L108), Physics South Building, The University of Melbourne
