Hi, I'm Alyx Elliott the UK Head of Programmes and Campaigns at World Animal Protection.
I have an academic background in animal, environmental and legal ethics and have been at World Animal Protection for nearly 10 years. I've loved being able to campaign on a whole host of issues ranging from bullfighting to getting animal welfare recognised at the United Nations.
I now oversee all of our UK campaigns, which includes our work on wildlife crime, farm animal welfare, and the devastating impact of 'ghost' fishing gear on marine animals.
I'm a PADI qualified scuba diver, a BDMLR Marine Mammal Medic, and have previously lived and worked in Southeast Asia.
If you can ride it, hug it or have a selfie with the wild animal, the chances are it’s a cruel venue. Don’t go.
In this blog, Aaron Lax our comms volunteer, focusses on what you can do on an animal-friendly holiday.
