Categories: Homepage News, Primates Campaign News

The Born Free Foundation proudly supports primate conservation and rescue and care work throughout Africa, whether it’s Eastern lowland gorilla conservation in the Democratic Republic of Congo or Chimpanzee, Vervet and Baboon rescue and care work in Uganda, Cameroon, Zambia, Malawi and Ethiopia. This work is ambitious, global, and vital.

In 2013 Born Free partnered with GRASP, Conservation International, and private donors to encourage innovation, inspire leadership, and offer hope in the field of great ape conservation in Africa and Asia through the 1st ever GRASP-Ian Redmond Conservation Awards. These awards honour our friend and indefatigable ally, British conservationist Ian Redmond, OBE, who, along with Born Free and other partners, helped establish GRASP in 2001.

The 1st GRASP - Ian Redmond Conservation Award winners included dedicated wildlife heroes from Africa and Asia whose accomplishments should inspire the next generation of conservationists, and encourage young men and women to take an active role in the survival of the great apes. Read more HERE.

Today, Born Free is pleased to announce our support for the 2nd GRASP – Ian Redmond Conservation Awards, and the call for nominations. If you work in the field of great ape conservation or research or you know someone who does, apply for this award here.
