As featured in 'The Reunion' clip that became a worldwide Youtube phenomenom with over 20 million combined views.
The amazing true story of a zoo-born lion cub who began his life in the pet department of Harrods and returned to Africa to lead his own pride.
Christian's discovery by Bill Travers in a furniture store in the King's Road, London, was the beginning of an incredible journey back to the wild. The complete story of his rescue, development, and gradual return to his ancestral home was superbly captured forever on film by Travers in a true story that has pathos, tragedy and triumph.
First seen as a theatrical cinema release, this feature length documentary remains one of the greatest wildlife films ever produced. The example of Christian continues to inspire the work of the Born Free Foundation in returning wildlife to the wild.
The Born Free Foundation is a dynamic international wildlife charity, devoted to compassionate conservation and animal welfare. Born Free takes action worldwide to protect threatened species and stop individual animal suffering. Born Free believes wildlife belongs in the wild and works to phase out zoos. We rescue animals from lives of misery in tiny cages and give them lifetime care.
Born Free protects lions, elephants, tigers, gorillas, wolves, polar bears, dolphins, marine turtles and many more species in their natural habitat, working with local communities to help people and wildlife live together without conflict. Our high-profile campaigns change public attitudes, persuade decision-makers and get results. Every year, Born Free helps hundreds of thousands of animals worldwide.
