Goldylocks Productions presents Live from Little Bear Sanctuary with Christopher Vane.
Today, Friday, 12 February 2021 at 12 pm ET.
Christopher Vane co-founded Little Bear Sanctuary, a nonprofit farm animal sanctuary in Punta Gorda, FL, in honor of his late mother Ursula (which translates to “little bear” in Latin). They shared a common passion for animals and Ursula often dreamed of providing neglected, once-abused animals a safe haven.
While originally from New York, Chris surprisingly started off with a career in human healthcare, eventually landing in Florida working as a real estate broker. When he met Randy, everything changed…for the better, that is! Their relationship sparked a new passion to live each day with purpose. After they got married, their desire to provide a better world for farm animals was greatly amplified. Together, Chris and Randy followed through on Ursula’s dream and established the Little Bear Sanctuary in 2017. Now, 160+ rescued farm animals call Little Bear Sanctuary home, and – thanks to Christopher’s compassion and dedication – each animal has been given an opportunity to experience love and freedom.
Little Bear Sanctuary provides a permanent home for farm animals that have been abandoned or can no longer be cared for by the owner in order to allow them to live out the remainder of their lives in a cruelty free environment. We are committed not only to a vegan lifestyle but the much needed education of pigs as pets. Our animals are never kept in cages or pens and are free to roam in their natural habitat.

Special Guest: Alex Leonard
“Humans and Elephants” is the debut film made by Alex Leonard, graduate alumni from a Masters in Environmental Sustainability at Western University in London, Canada.
The film has been 8 years or so in the making, following Alex’s journey as an elephant ambassador visiting numerous research facilities, sanctuaries, and national parks. The documentary follow’s Alex narrative as he discovers the significance and impact of both tourists and local people in their relationship to elephants.
From fundraising in highschool for a sanctuary to traveling at 18 years old visiting the Elephant Valley Project in Western Cambodia, Alex has had several experiences interacting with elephants. Over the years, Alex always kept a camera by his side, which has helped bring the film to life. Alex has fundraised for elephants in Montreal through art sales, presented about their wellbeing in Canada and the UK, conducted research in Sri Lanka, and now created a film about the topic to help educate others.
Elephant conservation has always been a film that Alex has been passionate about and he now hopes to continue his objective of sharing that love for these sentient beings with others.
Humans and Elephants is a compassionate and surprising story about the role that both elephants and humans have on each other in shared spaces over time.
