Born Free has a very special and unique history, shaped by some inspiring and much-loved individuals who embody our legacy and culture, and remind us of our core value that every individual matters.
“It is hard to believe that it was so long ago – 1964 – that our lives changed forever, but making the film Born Free in Kenya, meeting the Adamsons and the extraordinary lions, was our first step into an unknown future.
“And now, my memories of the past are unfaded, my hopes for the future are always optimistic – in spite of the strange new challenges that now face us all.
“These challenges should make us even more determined to protect the deeply vulnerable natural world and its creatures who so often suffer, exploited and unheeded. And I rejoice that more and more people feel the same as I do.” – Dame Virginia McKenna
