PLIGHT OF THE PANGOLIN

Pangolins are mysterious creatures we know little about. But, one thing we do know is that their very survival hangs in the balance.

That’s why we're working to conserve these amazing mammals in the wild, to rescue and return pangolins in need back to safe areas of their natural habitat, and to stop their illegal trade.

You can help give pangolins the chance of a better future.

DANGEROUS WILD ANIMALS: WHO LIVES NEXT DOOR?

New research by Born Free has revealed nearly 4,000 dangerous wild animals are being kept privately, and legally, under licence in Great Britain under the Dangerous Wild Animals Act 1976, including at least 320 wild cats, 274 primates and 508 venomous snakes.

With exotic pets on the rise in Britain, are you living next door to some of the world’s deadliest creatures?

PROTECT THEM. PROTECT US.

COVID-19 has transformed our world. We’ve had to radically change how we live to save lives. But, this is just a short-term fix.

Unless we change our ways, another pandemic will happen again. As an essential first step, wildlife markets must close. We must learn. We must re-educate ourselves. We must act. Watch our new short film to find out why when we protect them all, we protect ourselves.

 

WE ARE BORN FREE

We’re an animal charity that’s passionate about wild animal welfare and Compassionate Conservation. Founded by Virginia McKenna, Will Travers and Bill Travers, we work tirelessly to stop the exploitation and suffering of individual animals living in captivity or in the wild. From the start we’ve campaigned for a future where animals and people can co-exist and where threatened and endangered species are protected for generations to come.
