Cathy has been director of Save the Rhino, one of IRF’s closest partners, for 10 years, and had an eclectic history before becoming a conservationist. She studied art history at university, and then worked in art book publishing and retailing for several years. When London’s Tate Museum undertook a large campaign to fund the Tate Modern Gallery, Cathy was one of the lead fundraisers. After that position ended (and the Museum funding secured!) she was a free-lance fundraiser for several years. Then, she visited Madagascar and fell in love with nature on what she describes as “one of those perfect days”, seeing lemurs, sifakas, and other wildlife in an area where few westerners had ever visited. When she saw the advertisement for the position at Save the Rhino in London, she knew she had to have the job!
