Born Free

Protecting Hundreds of thousands of animals worldwide

The Born Free Foundation is an international wildlife charity founded by Virginia McKenna, Bill Travers and their eldest son Will Travers following Bill and Virginia’s starring roles in the classic film Born Free. Today, led by Will, the Foundation is devoted to wild animal welfare and compassionate conservation, working to save animal lives, stop suffering, rescue individuals and protect rare species. Our charity is determined to end captive animal exploitation, phase out zoos and keep wildlife in the wild. We take action for lions, elephants, gorillas, tigers, wolves, bears, dolphins, turtles and much more and work with local communities to find solutions to help people and wildlife live together without conflict.
