Story

Did you know that 90% of wild lions have been lost in the last century? Large cats and other mammals continue to be captured in the wild and sold as pets, or exploited in captivity for profit, often in horrific conditions. Up to 86% of forests in elephant ranges have declined in the last three generations, leaving forest African Elephants critically endangered. Over 96% of tigers have been lost in the last 100 years. Devastating.

But there is hope. Kenya has seen a 100% population increase of African Elephants in the last 40 years, up to 34,000, with a 96% decrease in elephant poaching activity. Bengal tigers in India have grown to 3,000 (100% up from 2006). Lion population numbers have increased by 25% to 2,500 in Kenya since 2010, the year our lion conservation work began there, and we are continuing to build on this. We've rescued over 55 lions from captive exploitation and the exotic pet trade.

Without our incredible supporters - and yes we do mean YOU - we wouldn't be able to continue to fight for animals in the wild and in captivity, and make a stand to save these iconic species.

So whether you're holding a delicious bake sale, running your own fundraising fitness challenge, or hosting a fundraising event, we want to make it as easy for you as possible. Please use this JustGiving page to create your own fundraising page, tell us how you're fundraising and what has motivated you, and share your page across your social networks.

Every £1 you raise really does make a difference and you can see just how we use your generous donations and sponsorship through regular updates on our social media channels.

To all our Born Free Wildlife Warriors and Freedom Fighters - hear our ROAR of gratitude.
