The Born Free Foundation Limited
The Born Free Foundation is a dynamic international wildlife charity, founded by Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers following their starring roles in the classic film Born Free. Today, led by their son Will Travers, Born Free takes action worldwide for wild animal welfare and compassionate conservation. From small beginnings, Born Free has grown into a global force for wildlife. Born Free believes wildlife belongs in the wild and works to phase out zoos and stop captive animal exploitation. Born Free rescues individuals from lives of misery in tiny cages and gives them lifetime care in spacious sanctuaries. Born Free protects threatened species including lions, elephants, tigers, gorillas, wolves, bears, marine turtles and much more in their natural habitat, working with local communities to help people and wildlife live together without conflict.

The journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step    LAO TZU


Philip Wells, (The Fire Poet is walking 1000 miles barefoot across England and Wales for the world's billion barefoot children.

These are children with no school and no shoes. But they have hope.

The hope that people like you and me can take a few steps together to give them a better life.

Already, children around the world are being inspired to do their own sponsored walks to help and turn the tide once and for all, from Iran to the Czech Republic, from Canada to Wales, from Kenya to Sri Lanka.

We're planet people. We need to look after our own.

Already, hundreds have pledged to walk for the cause - artists, poets, celebrities, historians, ecowarriors, politicians, writers, children and people like you who suddenly sense that real and lasting change is incredibly close.

BE this one step NOW - and a billion may follow.
