Born Free Foundation
small beginnings, the Born Free Foundation has grown
into a global force for wildlife. But a personal passion
for wild animals and desire for positive change remain
at our heart. Described by The Times as ‘Big enough
to make a difference, but small enough to care,’
Born Free is not a big anonymous organisation, but a
family of like-minded people who share the same goals.
Our work to prevent individual animal suffering, protect
threatened species and keep wildlife in the wild sets
us apart from the rest.
The Born Free Foundations emergency teams rescue vulnerable
animals from appalling lives of misery in tiny cages
and give them lifetime care at spacious sanctuaries.
Born Free saves orphaned big cats, great apes and elephants
and provides their food and care.
As human populations expand, wildlife comes under increasing
threat. Born Free is determined to try to halt the race
to extinction by protecting rare species in their natural
habitat. Working with local communities, we find compassionate
solutions so people and wildlife can live together.
Educational activities inspire young and old alike to
respect the wild.
Their major international projects are devoted to animal
welfare, conservation and education, and protect lions,
elephants, gorillas, chimpanzees, tigers, polar bears,
wolves, dolphins, turtles, sharks and lots more. Through
their Global Initiatives project, they respond to emergency
situations worldwide, participate in international coalitions
such as the Species Survival Network, run the People
& Wildlife project with Oxford University’s
WildCru department, and much much more.
