Animals In The Circus

Learn more about animals in the circus »

Born Free USA's dynamic circus campaign aims to end the exploitation and suffering of wild animals used in circuses through public education about the animals' quality of life, training and transportation methods, myths about conservation, and the inherent dangers to the public that exist by having wild and exotic animals in traveling exhibitions and performances, and by working to pass state and local laws aimed at prohibiting or restricting the use of wild and exotic animals in circuses.

The good news is that you as an individual have tremendous power to help change the lifetime of misery faced by animals that perform in circuses. There are a number of things you can do to start helping right away.

For example, you can contribute to Born Free USA's Elephant Defense Fund. Money raised for this fund will allow us to help elephants in captivity — in zoos and in circuses and more — and in the wild, where elephants are decimated to satisfy the ivory trade.
