Our Head of Conservation, Dr Nikki Tagg, reflects on the impact the changing climate will have on the lives of people across Kenya.
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.
Growing scientific evidence shows keeping wildlife in the wild is essential in our fight against the climate crisis. We need to save wild animals to save ourselves, explains Head of Conservation Dr Nikki Tagg.
Our Head of Policy Dr Mark Jones talks to Ralph Chami, Assistant Director at the International Monetary Fund, about his work as an economist and his passion for wildlife.
Apes have a key role maintaining forests but, can come into conflict with people. Born Free promotes co-existence so both can thrive, as our Conservation team reports in a fascinating long read.
In perhaps the most important report of our lifetime, the world’s scientists tell us that only drastic and immediate action can prevent our children facing an unliveable future and biodiversity being destroyed worldwide.
Water shortages are increasing, as the drought across the country has continued (although thankfully it has rained in recent days), in some areas reaching the third year with very limited rainfall. However, working with the local government and the community, Born Free is playing a part in addressing this issue for both the people and the wildlife of Meru.
Born Free is working with Equity Bank to protect and restore natural habitats near Meru National Park. Community Officer, Charles Njoroge, from our Kenyan team reports.
Our Head of Education, Laura Gosset, explains why our wildlife charity is so concerned about climate change and how nature can help address the climate crisis.
It’s World Wildlife Conservation Day and Born Free’s Head of Conservation Dr Nikki Tagg encourages each of us to play our part in coexisting with nature.
