Born Free Foundation - Keep Wildlife in the Wild

Ape Alliance

Born Free is an active member of this global coalition of organisations and individuals, working for the conservation and welfare of apes. It provides a forum for discussion of issues relating to apes, lobbies collectively for enforcement of legislation to improve the welfare and/or conservation of apes, and campaigns for greater public awareness of ape issues and increased respect for apes.

Primate Society of Great Britain

Through the Primate Society of Great Britain (PSGB), Born Free offers an annual grant to support field researchers working on primate conservation. The grant is usually (but not exclusively) targeted to nationals of developing countries, and to projects that have an impact on the conservation of a species.. 

"Born Free has always focussed on taking direct, positive action," says Head of Conservation, Dr Claudio Sillero, "but without reliable, scientific information conservationists cannot know what action is needed. That is why an investment in practical field research is vital."

The Great Apes Survival Partnership

The Great Apes Survival Partnership (GRASP) is an innovative and ambitious project of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Born Free provided the core of the GRASP Technical Support Team (TST) from September 2001 to January 2011 - liaising with the governments of great ape range states and providing them with valuable equipment, as well as interfacing with the broader conservation community and supporting the GRASP administration.

Since 2013 Born Free has partnered  with GRASP and Conservation International to award the UNEP-GRASP Ian Redmond Conservation Award to conservationists that  further great ape research and compassionate conservation action.
