Queen rocker and animal lover Brian May has turned his English estate into a wildlife refuge.
The guitarist purchased a large piece of land in Surrey more than 30 years ago and now he's completely converted the property into a sanctuary for injured creatures.
In total, May helps to care for 36 hedgehogs, seven badger cubs and two tawny owls, and the Don't Stop Me Now hitmaker considers his role as a champion for animal rights part of his life's greatest work.
He tells Britain's The Sunday Times, "When I'm gone, people will no doubt remember me for Queen, but I would much rather be remembered for attempting to change the way we treat our fellow creatures.
"Queen is a huge part of my life, but I do have other interests. People know about the astrophysics, but I love gardening too and I've always been passionate about the welfare of our wonderful British wildlife... I suppose I've lived a crazy life, and watching wildlife brings back a sense of tranquillity."
Earlier this year (12) May called on British government officials to block a proposed new dog breeding programme that would supply beagles for laboratory experiments. He also shot a nature documentary about lions in South Africa and often campaigns for the rights of badgers.
