KIEV, Ukraine, April 7, 2014 (ENS) – Ukraine resident Lionel de Lange, an entrepreneurial, animal-loving, bush war veteran from South Africa, is engaged in a rescue mission – to save more than 6,000 Ukraine zoo animals from starvation brought on by economic and political strife in the region.

These Ukrainian zoo animals are in dire straits because government funding for their food has dried up, De Lange said the animals will starve if aid is not provided by donors.

De Lange’s first rescue target is Ukraine’s 114 year old Nikolaev Zoo which has survived two world wars. It currently houses 5,735 animals, including big cats, wolves, bears, bison, foxes, monkeys, crocodiles, boa constrictors, deer, and a wide variety of birds and fish.

“At the Nikolaev Zoo, these thousands of animals are on the brink. There is only enough food left for the carnivores to eat today and tomorrow. The herbivores have enough to last one more week. Medical supplies have run out. These animals need our help right now,” said de Lange.

For assistance, de Lange contacted the Lawrence Anthony Earth Organization, LAEO. Located in California, LAEO is named after the South African conservationist who staged the Bagdad Zoo animal rescue mission at the onset of the Iraq War.

LAEO’s International President Barbara Wiseman immediately launched a fundraising campaign to supply food for the starved zoo animals after learning the details of the crisis from de Lange, who is in direct contact with Ukrainian zoo officials.
