CHIEF CONSERVATION OFFICER
Angela brings decades of conservation experience to Rainforest Trust, ranging from strategic planning to working with governments to boots-on-the-ground fieldwork across five continents.
Born in Hong Kong and raised in Canada, Angela completed her BSc. in Wildlife Management at the University of British Columbia, and her MSc. in Biodiversity, Wildlife and Ecosystem Health at the University of Edinburgh.
Prior to joining Rainforest Trust, Angela lived in Cambodia, Kenya and England, working for the Wildlife Conservation Society and the Zoological Society of London, as well as independently, assisting local NGOs in eastern Africa. More recently, her work has focused on sustainable landscape management, illegal wildlife trade issues and the socio-economic challenges that underlie so many areas of conservation.
Angela is a member of the IUCN Species Survival Commission and has co-authored and authored a number of publications, including a book chapter entitled, “Bridging the Gap between Conservation and Health”.
In her spare time, she enjoys finding innovative ways to engage new audiences with conservation, photography and just exploring.
