We are delighted to announce that Born Free‘s CEO, Will Travers, has been honoured for his work to protect endangered and suffering animals around the world with an OBE.

“If I could share this recognition with all of my wildlife heroes, who have fought, and are still fighting, for a more compassionate world, where individual wild animals do not suffer for our entertainment, our vanity or our ‘sport’, and where wild species and wild places are protected, respected and treasured – then I would.

In particular, I want to thank those who have inspired, encouraged and sustained my efforts, especially my mother, father and my entire family, my colleagues at Born Free – in the UK and throughout the world – and all our wonderful supporters and friends.

To be honoured in this way, in this very special Jubilee year, has left me, temporarily, almost speechless.”

Will Travers OBE
