Born Free never forgets individual animals. Every animal counts.
Where possible, we rescue vulnerable wild animals from appalling conditions where they have been confined, exploited or abused. We rehabilitate them and, whenever possible, release them back into the wild. Sadly, many of the wild animals we rescue have been too damaged by captivity to return to the wild.
Wild animals at our sanctuaries and rescue centres are given lifetime care and spacious environments in which they can live out their days in the peace and respect they need and deserve. Not only do we run our own sanctuaries and work with partners on sanctuary projects, we also work with partners around the world to provide emergency treatment and care to free-ranging wild animals, and support independent rescue centres.
