Born Free is committed to protecting threatened species in their natural habitats and preventing animal suffering, by building sustainable systems for co-existence. Wildlife is coming under increasing pressure from both environmental and human driven changes including habitat degradation and destruction, unsustainable exploitation of resources and human-wildlife conflict.
Education is a key to ensuring that young people grow up with an understanding of the issues facing our natural world, and that communities living alongside wildlife have the tools to co-exist, and flourish, alongside wild animals. Born Free’s Education Programme works with schools and communities across the UK, Kenya, Ethiopia and South Africa, instilling a love of wildlife and igniting a passion to protect it.
"In the end we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand and we will understand only what we are taught"
- Baba Dioum (1968)
