Growing up side-by-side with wildlife in Africa set the stage for Will Travers' life's work as a passionate animal protection activist.
In the 1960s his actor parents starred in the classic movie Born Free, which inspired their foundation of the same name now run by Will.
By carrying on the crucial work that his parents started, Travers travels tirelessly around the world to help inform and educate others on the importance of wildlife protection.
His message is clear: "Let's keep wildlife in the wild and let's not exploit it in captivity."
