Born Free Foundation work tirelessly to ensure that all wild animals; whether living in captivity or in the wild, are treated with compassion and respect and are able to live their lives according to their needs.
As a leading wildlife charity, they oppose the exploitation of wild animals in captivity and campaign to keep them where they belong – in the wild.
They promote Compassionate Conservation to enhance the survival of threatened species in the wild and protect natural habitats while respecting the needs and safeguarding the welfare of individual animals.
Along with donations from my work, I have produced a number of originals specifically for Born Free featuring animals they have rescued; including 'King' the lion cub and and 'Lions of Lyon'. I also painted this little lion cub which was named 'George' by Virginia Mckenna after the great George Adamson and was sold by auction at one of their Gala events as was the 'Lions of Lyon'.
