International Education & Communities

Born Free wants to transform attitudes towards wild animal welfare and conservation. Through our work, either directly undertaken by our country office teams or through our education partners, we reach schools, communities and individuals living alongside some of the world’s most threatened wildlife.

South Africa

In South Africa, our education programme is based out of our two big cat sanctuaries at Shamwari Private Game Reserve, giving children and adults an opportunity to learn about wildlife.
