EVENT SPEAKERS

Andrew Plumbly is a Campaign Manager for HSI, focusing on our global efforts to end the dog meat trade. For more than a decade, he has also managed HSI's annual expedition to document commercial sealing off the east coast of Canada.

 

Prior to joining HSI Canada, Plumbly served as executive director of Network for Animals, a UK based animal welfare organization, where he led the organization's campaign to eradicate the dog meat trade in the Philippines, initiated a campaign against horse fighting in the Philippines, and led numerous responses to natural disasters.

 

As a co-founder of Global Action Network, he has also worked on a number of other animal protection issues including factory farming, the fur trade and animals in entertainment-helping to block the construction of a captive dolphin facility in Quebec, achieving municipal bans of animals in entertainment in three Canadian municipalities, initiating an undercover investigation that led to an expose of two of Quebec's largest foie gras facilities, and convincing more than 300 Canadian retailers to remove fur products from their stores.

 

Andrew studied Fine Arts and English Literature at Concordia University in Montreal, where he now lives with his wife, 3 year old daughter and five rescued cats. "
