Freed to Be Wild

The endangered animals of Russia and the dedicated people who save them

Freed to Be Wild is a joint project between the World Wildlife Fund (WWF Russia) and RTD for the organization’s 25th anniversary in Russia. It features three WWF field staffers who are saving Russia’s endangered Amur tigers, Saker falcons, leopards, polar bears and walruses. These rare animals are facing a threat due to rising temperatures, forest loss and poaching. RTD travels to the Chukotka coast and the birch tree forest of the Amur region, and the steppes of Southern Siberia, to share stories of the people who have dedicated themselves to wildlife conservation.
