Liz is an animal advocate with over a decade of experience working for animal protection and conservation. She acted as Director of the Captive Animals' Protection Society (CAPS) from 2010 - 2015, after working in primate conservation in the UK and South America for various years previous. She now works as a consultant to the Born Free Foundation and the Palestinian Animal League - the only locally-run animal protection group operating in occupied Palestine.
In 2007, Liz co-founded UK registered charity, Entropika UK, and acted as Legal Representative of the organisation's Colombian partner, Fundacion Entropika, based in the southern Colombian Amazon, until 2009. During her time in South America, Liz worked extensively with Tikuna indigenous communities in various participatory projects and was fieldwork director of the Aotus Project; a pilot study to establish densities and abundances of the owl monkey (Aotus Spp), in order to present evidence to gain formal protection for the species, which was, at that time, threatened by large-scale extraction for biomedical research.
Liz is a law graduate with a specialisation in Environmental Policy. She is currently a PhD candidate at the University of Essex, School of Law. Her research explores the efficacy of animal welfare legislation in the UK.
She is an Associate Fellow of the Oxford Centre of Animal Ethics and sits on the board of trustees for primate conservation charity, Neotropical Primate Conservation - an organisation that she has been involved with since it was founded in 2007.
