Bio
A intense lifelong interest in animals and nature led Rob Laidlaw to a career helping animals and the environment. Since 1984, as Executive Director of Zoocheck, a national wildlife protection charity he founded, Rob has been involved in a broad range of animal issues. His work has taken him from Canada’s north to tropical Asia and has included many successful campaigns to change wildlife protection policies and laws in a variety of jurisdictions.

Rob is a Chartered Biologist, a former humane society inspector, and a past Project Manager and Technical Advisor for the World Society for the Protection of Animals. He is also the author of six children’s books, as well as book chapters and numerous reports.
