Keep wildlife in the wild! Support the Born Free charity and join Virginia McKenna and her team behind the scenes of a real life leopard rescue.

Every year Born Free helps hundreds of animals around the world. This is the true story of one of their incredible rescues . . .

Meet brave Leda, a dedicated mother leopard, and her shy twin daughters, Rhea and Roxanni. These are the Limassol leopards, a family who grew up behind bars in a cramped city zoo in Cyprus, far from their natural homeland. This is the inspiring true story of their rescue, a journey that led these remarkable creatures from hardship to hope, and to the eventual sanctuary of Born Free’s South African wildlife reserve.

Filled throughout with full-colour photographs and fascinating facts about how leopards live in the wild, this is an ideal book for young animal lovers.

My Thoughts

I really enjoyed reading this book, as an animal lover this book was really good to read. These animals were treated unfairly and cruelly; but these animals were rescued and put in a better habitat. I would suggest this book if you want to learn about these animals or if you want to learn about how they were rescued and nursed back to life.
