To make sure the authenticity of the information provided in my blogs, I not only include the available reviews on the internet but also interview industry experts.
what is born free foundation?
The premier focus of this organization is the preservation of wildlife by keeping the wildlife animal in the wild. The reason for keeping wild animals in the wild is to protect and nourish their natural habitat. The animal protector does it by running campaigns against keeping wild animals in captivity. They further rescue the wild animals.
Who founded born free foundation?
The foundation was initiated back in 1982 by celebrity actors Virginia Mckenna and Bill Travers. Fun fact they have got inspiration from a film name “Born free” in which they starred back in 1969. In 1982 both the stars visited the London zoo and found an elephant calf. Their first campaign was to bring that elephant calf whom they call pole pole out from the zoo. Sadly, during the transfer process pole pole died. This incident inspired the two actors to initiate an an organization named “Zoo Check,” which was then renamed Born free foundation.”
