Scott Lope has dedicated his life to animal advocacy—for all animals. Whether it’s a dog in need of an emergency foster home or a monkey at a sanctuary in desperate need of a new enclosure, he has always found a way to answer the call for help. While here in the United States, Mr. Lope has been responsible for the care and rescue of 100’s of wild cats, big or small, lions to domestic cats. Whether they’ve been abandoned, neglected, or orphaned, he has stepped up to assure a better life for them in captivity while running one of the largest accredited rescue facilities in the country.
Mr. Lope is a strong spokesperson for animals, continually looking for new and exciting ways to speak publicly on their behalf. His appearances on national and international documentaries and television shows, his radio interviews and presentations, and his conducting of hundreds of educational tours and workshops has assured the message resonates that our wildlife deserves preservation of their habitat and the right to a life of freedom.
Scott Lope has traveled the world in order to spread the word about the plight of our planet’s wildlife. Whether documenting and filming lion behavior in South Africa or tracking elusive black panthers in Europe, he has accepted every opportunity to motivate others to action. His passion has inspired hundreds of volunteers, interns, and television viewers to become animal advocates in new and creative ways. From the children who forego birthday presents in order to fundraise for animals to the dozens of international interns who continue to carry his message to their own countries, Scott Lope has become a role model. He truly is making a difference and looks forward to many new, exciting avenues to fulfill his mission of wildlife advocacy.
