Born Free Foundation - Keep Wildlife in the Wild

UK Wildlife Policy

So as to help get the most for our efforts, Born Free has joined Wildlife and Countryside Link (‘Link’) a coalition of over 40 of the UK’s best known conservation and animal welfare charities dedicated to protecting and enhancing wildlife, landscape and the marine environment.

Through Link, we are able to influence legislation and policy relating to our environment and wildlife at both UK and EU levels, by highlighting the intrinsic value of individual wild animals and their communities, and the value of healthy functional ecosystems to people and the economy. By acting collaboratively, our organisations are able to punch well above their individual weight when it comes to accessing and influencing ministers and government departments.

Our work with Link sees Born Free fighting to ensure Europe’s vital wildlife legislation, in the form of the Habitats and Birds Directives, don’t get watered down; instead we campaign for their full and effective implementation. We are helping to ensure that cuts to government department budgets in the UK don’t end up weakening environmental protection. We are also influencing the government’s 25 year plan for the natural environment, and making sure the government sticks to its commitments to fight the scourge of wildlife trafficking, both here and abroad.
