Our mission is to end the suffering of wild animals in captivity, rescue individual animals in need, protect wildlife — including highly endangered species — in their natural habitats, and encourage compassionate conservation globally.
Every year, millions of animals suffer in fur farms and circus cages. In our campaigns against such cruelties, we use powerful tools including legislation, public education, litigation, and grassroots networking. We also work actively with media to spread the word about challenges facing animals.
Our primary campaign areas currently include animals used in entertainment, captive exotic animals, trapping & fur, and the international wildlife trade.
The Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary, located in Dilley, Texas, offers more than 600 primates, many of whom were rescued from abusive situations in laboratories, roadside zoos, and private possession, life in as natural an environment as possible with minimal human interference.
