Leanne Abigail Condliffe
Always aspiring to the morals instilled in me as a child that we all have a responsibility to the vulnerable, including our non-human co-habitants of this beautiful planet which we share.
I am active in many animal welfare campaigns; more recently campaigning for a complete fur ban in the UK and throughout my life for the release of all orca and dolphins from cruel capture, training and lonely lives in the entertainment industry worldwide.
I work for The Body Shop (owned by Brazillian Company Natura), and support one of our company's biggest campaigns to date: Forever Against Animal Testing, which aims to collect 8 million signatures to present to the U.N. in a call to end Animal Testing in the cosmetic industry globally. Over 80% of countries sadly use animal testing. I am spurred on by the support of loved ones and like-minded friends I choose to have in my life.
