A True Story
By Louisa Leaman
Keep wildlife in the wild! Support the Born Free charity and join Virginia McKenna and her team behind the scenes in this full colour gift book about an amazing tiger rescue.
Every year Born Free helps hundreds of animals around the world. This is the story of one of their incredible rescues ...
During an undercover investigation, Born Free rescued five month-old tiger Roque from a pet shop in Barcelona. On completion of the Bannerghatta sanctuary in 2002, Roque was re-homed to India. Almost immediately, the friendly, outgoing youngster showed signs of the wild tiger he might once have been.
The Born Free Foundation is a dynamic international wildlife charity, founded in 1984 by the actors Bill Travers MBE and Virginia McKenna OBE, stars of the iconic film Born Free, and their son, Will Travers OBE, the charity's President. Born Free takes action worldwide to save lives, stop suffering and protect species in the wild.
