Join us for a very special event in December, the launch performance of a stunning new album Freedom to Roam. Created by our Patron, brilliant musician and Lion King flautist Eliza Marshall, the unique evening will feature some of the world’s top musicians from England, Wales, Kenya, Senegal, India and Italy.
A stunning collection of wild lion photography by critically-acclaimed wildlife photographer George Logan. Lion: Pride Before the Fall brings the plight of Africa's remaining lions into sharp focus with its array of poignant, thought-provoking images.
Each copy sold helps Born Free in its vital work to protect and re-establish The Last Lions of Meru, in Kenya.
COVID-19 has transformed our world. We’ve had to radically change how we live to save lives. But, this is just a short-term fix.
Unless we change our ways, another pandemic will happen again. As an essential first step, wildlife markets must close. We must learn. We must re-educate ourselves. We must act. Watch our new short film to find out why when we protect them all, we protect ourselves.
We’re an animal charity that’s passionate about wild animal welfare and Compassionate Conservation. Founded by Virginia McKenna, Will Travers and Bill Travers, we work tirelessly to stop the exploitation and suffering of individual animals living in captivity or in the wild. From the start we’ve campaigned for a future where animals and people can co-exist and where threatened and endangered species are protected for generations to come.
