Hi, I'm Ben.

As Programs Director of World Animal Protection US, I oversee our four campaign areas: Wildlife. Not Entertainers., Exotic Pets, Pigs, and Chickens.

With nearly a decade spent working for animal protection groups in the UK and US, I have been interviewed by virtually every national and international English-language broadcaster in the World.

My opeds have appeared in USA Today, Newsweek, The Independent, and the International Business Times among others.

My areas of expertis include animals in entertainment, exotic pets, factory farming, vegetarian/ vegan issues, cruelty to animals, and humane education.

My blogs will detail our work to protect animals across all of our program areas.
