Today we’re talking about a sanctuary for lions, tigers, bears, and other animals who are abused, neglected, and horribly mistreated through the exotic animal trade.


"Everything from the smallest reptile to a full-grown tiger can be sold to anyone for the right price. However, most owners don't realize the huge responsibility they are inheriting when they purchase exotic pets, and there's rarely a happy ending for the animal. Just how does the exotic pet trade work, and what happens to these animals when the novelty wears off?"

Founder, Director, and CEO of Lions, Tigers, and Bears, Bobbi Brink, joins me today to discuss the impact of the exotic animal trade and how she's worked with and advocated for captive big cats, bears, and other exotic animals since the early 90s.

Bobbi talks about her exotic animal sanctuary and educational facility in Alpine, CA, and shares what goes into rescuing and caring for these animals as well as stopping this heinous trade.


We Discuss:

  • How the techniques of energy psychology allow us to bypass the conscious mind
  • The ability to acknowledge and deconstruct our limiting subconscious beliefs
