Ian Redmond OBE, Born Free’s Senior Wildlife Consultant
Ian is a tropical field biologist and conservationist, renowned for his work with great apes and elephants; he has been a wildlife consultant with Born Free since 1986. Having authored books, articles, reports and scientific papers Ian is currently part of a team developing virtual reality as a tool for conservation education.
In tropical forests, where between 75-95% of tree species have their seeds dispersed by animals, rather than by wind or water, the loss of fruit-eating animals would have a catastrophic impact …fewer frugivorous animals, fewer seedlings growing into the trees of tomorrow.
“I am a naturalist by birth, a biologist by training, and a conservationist by necessity”. Delve into the past 40 years of Ian’s international career and the species and individuals he has encountered along the way.

Born Free is partnering with production company Ships in the Night and its new family play Pangolin. The play is a refreshing opportunity to share what is a current and vital conservation message and aims to raise awareness of the plight of these remarkable animals. Touring venues in England in autumn 2020. Dates and venues to be confirmed.
Born Free is partnering with Last Chance to Paint, an innovative new series to inspire children to connect to the natural world and tribal culture through art and music, helping children become aware of what we stand to lose. In June 2019, artist John Dyer travelled to the amazon to learn about the tribal culture of the Yawanawá people of Brazil along with the vegetation and wildlife that can be found in the rainforest – taking children on a journey to discover their connection to the forest through art. Relive his journey or follow his next adventure in Chapter 2: Person of the Forest, Borneo.
