Julie Cappiello

Social Media Manager

Hi, I’m Julie.

As the Social Media Manager, I oversee all of World Animal Protection's US social media accounts and blog platforms.

An animal activist for nearly a decade and a vegan for almost as long, I became active in animals in entertainment campaigns at the age of 18, shortly thereafter starting my own nonprofit to focus on the issue.

Before joining World Animal Protection, I have worked in grassroots, political, and international animal protection organizations and have expertise in nonprofit management, community organizing, social media, and digital marketing, and managing staff from around the world including Latin America, Brazil, India, and Asia. 

Have a question about my blogs or news you’d like to share? Email me at JulieCappiello@worldanimalprotection.us or tweet me @dolphindefender.
