Over the last few weeks, we have introduced you to some of our adopted animals, but here are some others you may like to adopt.
GOPAL THE TIGER
Gopal was captured by the Indian authorities after preying on cattle. He was considered too much of a risk to be released back to the wild so conflict tiger Gopal lives at our sanctuary in southern India.
Elsa’s Pride is a wild pride of lions living in Meru National Park, Kenya. In the 1980’s Meru was overrun by poachers and much of its wildlife decimated. Born Free’s field team is working to gain a deeper understanding of the wild lions slowly making a comeback in Meru, by monitoring, tracking and surveying the pride.
THE CHEETAH FAMILY
Most of The Cheetah Family are victims of the exotic pet trade and stolen from the wild as cubs. For the lucky few that are rescued, they live in spacious natural bush enclosures and receive expert care at our wildlife rescue centre in Ethiopia.
THE JAGUAR FAMILY
The Jaguar Family’s greatest threats are habitat loss and human conflict. The Born Free-supported Jaguars in the Fringe is working with local communities to protect the wild jaguars living in the Yungas forest of Argentina.
BODO THE MOON BEAR
Bodo was rescued from the cruel bear bile industry and missing his front right paw when found. He receives expert care and lives with other rescued bears at the Born Free-supported Animals Asia’s Bear Centre in China.
THE ETHIOPIAN WOLF FAMILY
Threatened by loss of habitat and lethal diseases carried by domestic dogs, The Ethiopian Wolf Family is monitored and protected by the Born Free-supported Ethiopian Wolf Conservation Programme. These rare wolves can only be found in the highlands of Ethiopia.
THE LEOPARD FAMILY
Abandoned and rescued from a zoo, The Leopard Family has space and privacy as well as expert lifetime care at our big cat sanctuary in South Africa.
MUGARUKA & CHIMANUKA THE GORILLAS
These eastern lowland gorillas are monitored and protected by rangers in Kahuzi-Biega National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Mugaruka lost his hand in a poacher’s snare and, unable to defend a family, mostly lives alone. Chimanuka lives with his large family in the mountain rainforest.
SARA AND CHINOISE THE CHIMPANZEES
Sara was confiscated from a wildlife trader who tried to sell her and Chinoise was sold to a restaurant to attract customers. Both orphaned chimps were rescued and are now learning how to interact with other chimps at Born Free-supported sanctuaries in Uganda and Cameroon.
KYRIAKOS THE BROWN BEAR
Kyriakos was orphaned as a cub when his mother was killed. He lives at the Born Free-supported Arcturos Bear Sanctuary in Greece and receives the expert care he needs in a safe and natural environment.
SPRINGER THE ORCA
Two-year-old Springer was found swimming alone and disorientated near Seattle, USA. Luckily, she was identified by her unique calls and reunited with her wild family pod near Vancouver Island, Canada. Orcalab, based in Canada, monitors Springer and is the world’s longest field study of wild orca.
