Since 2003 our Global Friends programme has provided small grants to schools and community groups connected to existing Born Free-supported wildlife conservation and animal welfare partners.
It is our belief that promoting tolerance and co-existence amongst communities living alongside wildlife – in environmentally fragile areas or areas supporting high biodiversity – enhances the long term success of any conservation efforts, and both wildlife and communities benefit.
