Born Free Foundation - Keep Wildlife in the Wild

Kanjoo School

Located near the Rhino Sanctuary in Meru National Park, Kanjoo School started working with the Born Free Kenya team in 2016.

Kenya is of historical significance to the Born Free Foundation and is the reason why Born Free Kenya was established. Born Free Kenya protects wild animals through de-snaring, wildlife monitoring and human-wildlife conflict mitigation projects, while working with communities and local partners to change attitudes and policies, working to ensure a safe and thriving future for Kenya’s magnificent wildlife.
