Born Free initiative provides a lifeline for communities living alongside endangered gorillas and chimpanzees.
In a world increasingly at risk of ecological disaster due to the climate crisis, the importance of forests has never been clearer. On World Environment Day 2023, we highlight Born Free’s projects around the world that are helping preserve this critical ecosystem and the species that are integral to their functioning and survival.
Born Free reports on the progress of our newest conservation programme: Guardians of Dja – working with local people to protect gorillas and chimpanzees in the rainforests of Cameroon.
Your generous donations to our recent Apes on the Edge appeal have already had a remarkable impact.
Find out about the problems faced by captive primates, and see some of the reports we have received through Raise The Red Flag.
Born Free has welcomed an announcement from the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) that the mountain gorilla is no longer classified as Critically Endangered.
