Hi, I'm Scott the disaster communications manager for World Animal Protection.

I'm on the ground managing communications for our disaster response team and connecting our supporters to the animals' stories. Without their support we wouldn't be able to carry out the life saving work we do, so sharing our work with them is one of the most fulfilling parts of my job. 

I've been passionate about animals my whole life. Since 2012, when I joined World Animal Protection, it's been a privilege to be able to protect them. Without a voice, they are often the forgotten victims of disasters. It gives me great joy to be part of the work we do saving their lives and ultimately playing a crucial role in helping the communities that depend on and love them get back on their feet. 

My blog will bring you stories straight from the field when we deploy to a disaster zone. From the individual animals we rescue, to the ongoing work we do in partnership with governments and local authorities, my posts will take you through the whole process of responding to disasters. It's an intense journey that may upset you at times, but it is also full of unexpected and beautiful moments. I hope you enjoy reading it.
