Tippi Hedren–Veteran actress

by | Apr 25, 2005

Tippi Hedren–the veteran actress perhaps best known for starring in Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds,” but for more than three decades has operated The Shambala Preserve, an 80-acre facility in Acton, CA for big cats and other animals–discusses her lifelong love of animals, how making the movie “Satan’s Harvest” in Africa in 1969 launched her on a path to make the film “Roar” and then to create Shambala, where the animals there come from (circuses, zoos, phony sanctuaries, idiots who have big cats as pets, etc.), some of the animal-oriented legislation she’s working on and supporting, the films she’s still making, and more.  [www.Shambala.org]
