Leona Lewis flies to Romania to visit rescued bears

HollywoodNews.com: Singer and animal lover Leona Lewis has been a long-time World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) supporter because, “I want to live in a world where animal welfare matters and animal cruelty ends, and that’s the charity’s goal, too.”

As seen in a video released today, the singer recently visited a bear sanctuary in Romania to see WSPA’s work in action. There, she met bears who were rescued from a life of suffering at tourist attractions, kept in cramped cages outside restaurants, on roadsides and in private zoos.

“Visiting the Romanian bear sanctuary was truly an eye-opening experience,” says Lewis. “These bears have suffered horrible tragedies, but now have an amazing second chance at life in a safe and peaceful environment – all thanks to the WSPA and its supporters. I am honored to be a spokesperson for WSPA’s campaigns, and I encourage others to join in our fight to protect animals, worldwide.”

Last year, Lewis also put her name to WSPA’s “Animals Matter to Me” movement for a universal declaration on animal welfare.

“As an international star, Leona can reach out to a wide audience and show why animals need our protection,” says Silia Smith, Interim U.S. Executive Director at WSPA. “She inspires so many people to help WSPA in our work to end animal cruelty – we are truly fortunate to have her ongoing support.”
