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.
