These animals were abandoned at Magic World Zoo in Aleppo, Syria after war broke out — so these people are risking their lives to go in and save them. Bombings have left the city devastated and as the people were forced to flee, these animals were forgotten about and left behind.

A local man fed them when it was safe to visit but rescuers were unable to reach them until now. First they gave them food and water, then they loaded them into cages so they could get them onto trucks. Then they started the long journey from Syria to Turkey. Now they are getting the care and attention that they deserve.
