Last weekend I got up at 2am and went with Virginia McKenna to London’s Gatwick airport to photograph lions. It was worth every second of lost sleep. Jora and Black, formerly in a Bulgarian circus, had been rescued by the Born Free Foundation after Bulgaria outlawed animals in circuses. When I met them at Gatwick, they were halfway through a journey that involved three flights and three road trips, one lasting thirteen hours. After being checked by Born Free’s amazing vet, Johan Joubert and big cat expert Tony Wiles, they were on their way to Africa. Forty-eight hours later, they were set free,
Here is a photo-diary of their journey from the cramped, horrific beast-wagon, where they languished for over 18 months, to fields of wildflowers at Born Free’s sanctuary at Shamwari Game Reserve in South Africa.

A Race They Both Have to Win
A deadly 1,200 mile endurance challenge across the American West. Can Will and Alex survive it without losing their lives or hearts?
Researchers at the Institute of HeartMath have found a clue to explain the bidirectional “healing” that occurs when we’re around horses. In humans, the heart has a larger electromagnetic field and higher level of intelligence than the brain. Scientists used a magnetometer to show that the heart’s energy field radiates as much as ten foot around the human body. That’s impressive, but not as amazing as the electromagnetic field projected by the horse’s heart, which is five times larger and significantly stronger than the human one.
Put simply, being near horses directly influences the rhythm of your own heart.
British producer Simon Brooks (Love, Rosie) has snapped up the film rights to Lauren St John’s acclaimed novel, THE GLORY, about an epic endurance race across the American West. Brooks, whose Canyon Creek Films has offices in London and LA, will co-produce with Joan Singleton (Because of Winn-Dixie), who introduced him to the project.
