Born Free USA Exec. VP on "Talking Animals"
My guest on "Talking Animals" July 17 will be Adam Roberts, executive vice president of Born Free USA.
Roberts co-founded the organization in 2002 to bring the United Kingdom-based Born Free Foundation’s message of compassionate conservation to the U.S. public.
Roberts has expertise that traverses many areas of animal welfare, including wildlife conservation, captive wild animals, and international wildlife trade.
He’s also enormously knowledgeable about animal sanctuaries, having helped found, in 2007, the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries.
The GFAS evaluates and accredits sanctuaries, using a “robust set of operational and species specific criteria,” and Roberts serves as president of the GFAS Board.
Adam Roberts will speak with us live on "Talking Animals" on July 17 at 9am ET, and listeners are invited to participate in the conversation by calling (813-239-9663) or e-mailing (DJ@wmnf.org).
