The Wild Leopard Print deodorant cases in aid of The Born Free Foundation

Take a walk on the Wild side with our limited edition leopard print cases in aid of The Born Free Foundation.
We’ve upped the Wild-ness of our deodorant cases and embellished them with a stunning Leopard Print design - all in aid of international wildlife charity, Born Free.
For every Leopard Print case sold, we’ll donate 50p to Born Free who work tirelessly to stop the exploitation and suffering of animals living in captivity and campaign to keep them where they belong – in the wild. We’ve committed to raise as much money as we can to protect wild animals, conserve habitats, and end activities that exploit wild animals.
Want to know more about what Born Free are doing?
The Born Free Foundation has been on a mission to protect wild animals since 1984. Working alongside local communities, they manage or fund conservation and animal welfare projects in more than 20 countries worldwide. They also remove vulnerable wild animals from appalling captive conditions - releasing them back into the wild, or giving them lifetime care at sanctuaries.
Let’s hear it for the leopards
We chose to embellish our case with Leopard Print because leopards are under threat from humans. There are thought to be just 100,000 leopards living in the wild due to threats from poaching, habitat loss and competition with humans for space. They are classed as vulnerable by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.
Amongst other animals, Born Free funds their care and conservation by protecting leopards in the wild or rescuing individuals from captive suffering and rehoming them in their sanctuaries.
As just one example of the extensive work they are doing, Born Free are currently giving a leopard family lifetime care in spacious enclosures at their sanctuary at Shamwari Private Game Reserve in South Africa.
Mother Leda and daughter Rhea came from a failed zoo in Cyprus in 2009 where they shared a cramped cage together. They’re joined by Sami who was rescued when he was found abandoned as a cub in the Sudanese desert in 2001. He was thought to be just four months old when found.
What care are they given?
Sadly, the nature of the rescued leopards’ backgrounds means they are unable to fend for themselves if released into the wild so they are given expert, lifetime care in a spacious, safe and natural environment.
The leopards are given a natural bush habitat to call their new home. The surroundings include grass slopes, shady shrubs, indigenous trees and dense undergrowth for them to explore. Much like pet cats, big cats like to be up high so they can watch over everything so the leopard are given trees and wooden platforms to allow them to view neighbouring hills.
The reserve has a fantastic team who are devoted to looking after the cats’ needs. Educating visitors is a huge part of the carers' work and they play a vital role in highlighting the plight of captive wild animals, animal welfare and conservation issues.
What have the leopard family been up to lately?
It gets hot in South Africa so the leopards have been enjoying some frosty treats. It might not sound appetising but they’ve been eating ice lollies made from a concoction of raw meat and offal frozen up in a block which is surprisingly delicious and refreshing if you’re a leopard (we'll stick to normal ice lollies thanks!).
How can I get involved?
Until the end of July, we’re working alongside Born Free to support their mission to keep wildlife in the wild and 50p from every Leopard Print case sold will go towards projects such as rescuing the Born Free leopard family.
A staple in wardrobes around the world, it’s time to make leopard print a staple in the sustainable bathroom. It’s a classic and timeless design and we’re absolutely obsessed with it.
