Movie star and animal rights activist Pamela Anderson visited a lion saved from a flood in the Ussuriysk Aoo following typhoon Goni in Russia's Far East, RIA Novosti reported.

Pamela Anderson also discussed preserving the environment with Russia's nature minister Sergei Donskoy, including the preservation of endangered Amur tigers. During her visit to the Amur Tiger Center, which seeks to grow the wild tiger population and rehabilitate captive animals to survive in the wild, Anderson called the efforts inspiring.

"I really liked the Primorsky territory. I saw how open Russia is and how much people care about preserving the environment. Russia is a mysterious country for Americans and I'm happy that people here care about preserving wildlife," Pamela Anderson said.

Anderson also called for an end to animal captivity on her website, calling her visit to the reintegration center inspiring.

"Our children learn more about them through nature films than seeing them miserably confined, and it sends a harmful message," Anderson wrote.

Pamela Anderson also called on Russia to stop exporting beluga whales to the US, where the amusement park Sea World seeks to buy them. Anderson also called on Russia to stop allowing the transit of whale meat caught by Icelandic ships through Russian waters.
