Every year, Born Free rescues and protects thousands of animals around the world. Whether this is funding anti-poaching patrols, key research initiatives or providing lifetime care for rescued animals, the money raised from our adoption programme funds key work and helps to provide a better future for wildlife. Money from your adoption will be used to directly fund the care and/or protection of the adopted animal/species, as well as to fund other key Born Free initiatives and projects.

Born Free does not work with domestic or companion animals, although we do have affiliations with organisations working in these areas.
Born Free regularly receives calls for help in regard to captive animals in need. Sadly, there are many more animals in need of rescue than there are sanctuary spaces worldwide - it is therefore vital we use precious sanctuary spaces not only to rescue animals in need, but also to highlight the problems facing captive wildlife (eg, private ownership, trade, substandard zoos, etc). We therefore have many considerations to make when we are informed about a captive animal in need - this FLOWCHART will give you an idea of what we must take into account when we receive information from supporters.
Wherever possible, we encourage the employment of people native to the region in which we are working, because we believe conservation stands a far better chance of becoming fully supported by communities if local people are direct stakeholders.
However, international volunteers are an invaluable asset to wildlife conservation and we want to encourage people with the desire and motivation to make a difference. Some of the projects we support offer volunteer opportunities.
