Born Free USA's 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.

We work actively with media and use powerful tools including legislation, public education, litigation, and grassroots networking to spread the word about challenges facing wildlife.

Through our campaigns, we work to end the use of animals in entertainment, captivity of exotic animals, trapping and fur trades, and international wildlife trade.

We also run the Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary in Dilley, Texas. The 186-acre sanctuary provides a safe, permanent home for more than 600 nonhuman primates (macaques, baboons, and vervets), many of whom were rescued from abusive situations in research facilities, roadside zoos, or private possession.
