Former Employee External Affairs
Vanessa Amoroso

Hi, I’m Vanessa and I’m the External Affairs Advisor for the UK office.

I have a background in environment and animal welfare, and have been within the NGO Animal Welfare sector for nine years. I first joined World Animal Protection four years ago working as an International Campaigner. My work over this time has seen global policy changes with Instagram and action with Turkish Airlines; up-listing of species at CITES; and the mobilisation of over a million people calling on the G20 for a wildlife trade ban.

My role now focuses on influencing stakeholders and decision makers so that animal welfare is put on the UK policy and legislative agenda – all working towards a better world for animals.  

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my dogs, cooking up a plant-based storm, and being in the sea.
