ClearSpan aids in the rescue of twenty-five Bolivian circus lions.

"The Wild Animal Sanctuary was looking for just the right building to help protect the lions we rescued from Bolivia and ClearSpan had the perfect solution for us."

This month, twenty-five rescued lions from Bolivia arrived at their new home in a ClearSpan structure at the Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg, CO. When the Bolivian government put a ban on the use of live animals in the country’s traveling circuses, the animals needed a safe place to spend the rest of their lives.

Sanctuary Director Pat Craig worked with ClearSpan to create a habitat for the lions that would help them transition from the warm Bolivian climate to the cold Colorado winter. A 15,000 sq. ft. ClearSpan Hercules Truss Arch Building was fast tracked for the project, taking only 8 weeks from design to installation. The building features fencing around the sides to keep the lions contained and a protected catwalk for visitors to view the animals.

Says Craig, “The Wild Animal Sanctuary was looking for just the right building to help protect the lions we rescued from Bolivia and ClearSpan had the perfect solution for us. Their fabric building was the clear choice when it came to providing a long-lasting and durable structure for the lions. Its ability to provide natural light inside made all the difference, since it allowed us to give the lions grass, trees and other natural amenities. ClearSpan not only provided us with a great product, their expert team made all the difference with the project.”
