When students start on a Wildlife Conservation degree, most of them want to cuddle fluffy, enigmatic animals such as meerkats, monkeys, and even lions. Why wouldn’t they? It is in our human nature to want to nurture animals and form a bond with them. However, by the end of the course the students have learnt how to conserve animals, and see that in most cases we need to stand back from nature and leave it to be free. This is exactly what Joy Adamson discovers during James Hill’s film Born Free (1966), the true story of Elsa the ‘pet’ lioness.
