Shortly after she moved to Southern California from Montreal, Canada, a beach encounter with a sea lion dying from domoic acid poisoning made a deep impact on Caroline. This direct witnessing of the destructive impacts of humans on wildlife and ecosystems – and the ensuing suffering and death – catalyzed a shift in Caroline’s work from art and design to animal advocacy. Concurrently, awareness of the radical increase in elephant poaching, and learning about the immense suffering of elephants and cetaceans in captivity, clarified her focus.
She has since worked as a campaign associate on behalf of elephants and cetaceans for In Defense of Animals and has served as Communications and Administrative Coordinator for several non-profit organizations.
Caroline is deeply committed to increasing wise relations with our animal kin and the natural ecosystems in which we all dwell, while advocating for the freedom, dignity and protection of non-human persons.
