WILD ANIMALS AS PETS: OUR WORK

Born Free campaigns for an end to the keeping of wild animals as exotic pets.

Born Free is increasingly concerned by the number of exotic pets available for sale online and in pet shops. There are many animal welfare issues involved and the staggering number of dangerous wild animals kept privately is also a genuine risk to human safety. 

We investigate and expose the exotic pet industry and associated live animal trade; campaign for changes to national and international legislation; raise public awareness of the issues; and, where possible, rescue individual animals caught up in the trade.
