I am excited to feature Born Free USA on This N That with Olivia!! I learned of Born Free when searching the web about wildlife conservation to see what measures we were taking in the USA! Born Free USA is a global leader in wildlife conservation and animal welfare with the primary goal “To Keep Wildlife in the Wild.”  

Born Free USA is a national animal advocacy nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, contributions to which are tax-deductible. 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.

Lately I’ve been more interested in Wildlife conservation simply due to the fact that I’ve seen a lot of cruelties and other issues with wildlife surfacing the news headlines. It is very important that we do not overlook the fact that these animals are in need of a bigger voice. We can give that to them with the help of organizations like Born Free USA. 

Through litigation, legislation, and public education, the organization leads vital campaigns against: 

Born Free USA brings to North America the message of “compassionate conservation” — the vision of the U.K.-based Born Free Foundation, established in 1984 by Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna, stars of the iconic film “Born Free,” along with their son Will Travers.

Born Free’s mission is to end suffering of wild animals in captivity, conserve threatened and endangered species, and encourage compassionate conservation globally.

The issues mentioned above and how Born Free USA has helped through litigation, legislation and public education are vital in stopping these cruelties to our natural wildlife. There are many things that negatively impact the wildlife, such as the destruction of trees and their natural habitat, so we need to do what we can to stop it. 

One of my favorite all time animals are panda bears! When I was born, it was around the same time that a baby panda was being born– since then my love for Pandas has grown. It saddens me to see them as an endangered species and I only wish that I could do more to help them out. I am grateful that we have a panda and baby panda in the local zoo– Washington DC National Zoo and pray that we are able to sustain their species for a lot longer! 🙂

Captive dolphins and orcas do not outlive their wild counterparts, even with veterinary care and medications.

I learned about the bear bile farms in Asia. I won't post what I learned, but I can't believe that anyone could do something so cruel! Those poor bears!
