We’re back in Iquitos, Peru, filming another episode of the ‘Spirit of Freedom’ series, which follows the work of Animal Defenders International, a UK-based animal rights charity which has worked with the Peruvian government to ban the use of wild animals in circuses. The series, which we’ve been filming since April 2014, follows the team as they seize animals from circuses and find new homes for them. The numbers are rising all the time as lions, monkeys, bears and even tortoises come to light. Some of the monkeys seem keen on following a career in the media.
