#TBT 2009 & 2016. Born into captivity, Leda (with her daughters, Rhea and Roxanni) once lived in a municipal zoo – only knowing the painted trees on the barren concrete walls. Having received complaints on the zoo for years, Born Free were given permission by the Mayor of Cyprus to give the three leopards a new home.

With the help of our loyal supporters, we transferred our leopard family to...

We are deeply concerned that the current system is inconsistent and does not adequately protect the vast number of animals kept in zoos in the UK.” - Chris Draper, Associate Director for Animal Welfare at Born...

Each day she is taken out into the forest to forage, she is watched over at all times by two...
