The Born Free Foundation is an international wildlife charity that campaigns to “Keep Wildlife in the Wild.”

Founded by English actors and wildlife campaigners Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna, its mission is to protect wild animals in their natural habitat, campaigns against the keeping of wild animals in captivity, and rescues wild animals in need. It also promotes compassionate conservation, which takes into account the welfare of individual animals in conservation initiatives.

Born Free:

Born Free’s head office is located in West Sussex, southeast England. It also has offices in Kenya, Ethiopia and South Africa, with representatives in Sri Lanka and Australia.

Born Free manages or funds projects in more than 20 countries worldwide – across Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas and focuses on ‘nine working priorities’ including: captive wild animal exploitation; trophy and canned hunting; wildlife trade; rescue, care, rehabilitation & release; human-wildlife co-existence and conservation; integrated wildlife protection; trans-boundary programs; UK wildlife protection; and education.
