THE WORLD IS WATCHING!
We support tremendous efforts @four_paws_international made to save last survivors of Mosul's zoo and we are hoping that the officials in Mosul will let these animals go home in peace and finally free.

UPDATE FROM IRAQ:
Yesterday has been one of the toughest days ever in the history of FOUR PAWS. Early morning we departured from Erbil and headed to war-torn Mosul to rescue Lula and Simba from their desolated home.
Everything went as we have planned it. We had full support of the army. They joined us on our way to Mosul zoo and were on site when we anaesthetise Lula and Simba. After the two animals were loaded on the truck, they escorted us out of the city until we reached the first checkpoint, which is located at the border of Mosul. There we were stopped and detained. We negotiated, but did not succeed. Lula and Simba had to go back to the zoo, we were asked to leave Mosul without them.
During the night our mission leader Amir Khalil started to negotiate. And he still is. We don't know what the outcome of this negotiations will be. But we will do our best to still find a sustainable solution for Lula and Simba. For us it's clear: They have to be removed from Mosul to a safe and species-appropriate place somewhere else.
We are still not sure, why we have been stopped at the border. We are currently also trying to figure that out.
Please: Keep your fingers crossed for Lula and Simba! They need your support now more than ever!

:: F L U I D I T Y :: current status; SICK at home with a sinus infection, hot and cold chills and an achey body. I gave away all my classes today, sorry 🤒 ... wishing I could move like this, but instead, finding it hard to move at all without the aches and pains of a geriatric! Take your vitamins! This ever changing weather will leave you sick like me if your immune system is low functioning.
Flashback to the @bbqbeerroadshow earlier this year. A little BTS from the day 🍻
Amazing food and boutique beers! I highly recommend attending the next one :) Em @visitbrisbane @blackbookbne @brisbaneweekender @brisbanecitycouncil @brisbaneexperience @brisbanesbestmeals @brisbanefoodlovers @getstuffedbrisbane @brisbanefoodtheory @mustdobrisbane @burleighbrewing @artisan_bbq @allinnbrewingco @newsteadbrewingco @smokinguntexasbbq
