Born Free USA Blog
by Will Travers,
Chief Executive Officer
What can you say about a big-hearted bloke who has rescued dolphins, tigers, elephants and more and whose parents once helped a lion cub from a department store by caring for him in their backyard and engineering his rightful return to Africa? You can safely say that he's got great animal instincts! In 1984, Will Travers joined his parents — "Born Free" film stars Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers — to form what became The Born Free Foundation. With knowledge, passion and compassion dripping from his every word, Will's blogs are sure to make you embrace our crusade to Keep Wildlife in the Wild ®.
Brian and Kerry make our hearts sing!
On Monday night I saw the end of their sell-out ‘The Born Free Tour’ at High Wycombe. On behalf of myself and the entire Born Free staff I would like to say to Brian and Kerry, as well as their entire team — THANK YOU!
These past few weeks have been quite unlike anything we have experienced before at Born Free. To have two superstars from the world of rock music and musical theater not only record our signature song (check out www.bornfree.org.uk/bfsingle), but go on tour and bring Born Free’s message of compassionate conservation to a whole new audience, is beyond special! It is a lifetime highlight that I for one (and I know I speak for the thousands who saw the shows) will treasure in my heart forever.
Thanks to Brian and Kerry, all the crew, together with Jim, Jeff, Pete, Phil and Sara, the Born Free Family is stronger than ever!
