Born Free has launched Wildlife Heroes – a year-long celebration of inspirational men and women from all walks of life who have dedicated their lives to the protection and conservation of wildlife.
Wildlife Heroes recognises and thanks those on the front line of compassionate conservation, from carers, vets and rehabilitators, to educators, biologists, researchers and activists.
Each amazing individual has been chosen for their dedication, courage and support for wildlife conservation. Many are well-known, but others are unsung heroes who are well overdue the public recognition they deserve for their tireless work.
Every month, we will add new Wildlife Heroes to this page to share the stories of these amazing men and women. We hope you will share their stories with your friends and families, too.
