Animal Planet's "Dodo Heroes" explores the personalities and emotions of both humans and animals while highlighting their unique connection. Featured stories document true heroes and the animals they save, including, among other stories. Pepe the spider monkey has lived his entire life on a short chain in a Peruvian circus. At the same circus, six lions, including a female lion named Kiara and her two cubs, are kept in cramped cages and forced to perform under the threat of physical violence. Animal Defenders International (ADI), led by Jan Creamer and Tim Phillips, arrives in Peru to rescue the animals.

Creamer and Phillips joined BUILD to discuss their efforts.
