For over 30 years, Katrina has been advocating for animals in a variety of capacities in both Australia and Japan including, but not limited to, fundraising, event management, lobbying, direct action (duck rescue and factory farm rescue), protests, street activism, emergency support and administrative support. Katrina firmly believes that no matter how insurmountable the challenges we face appear to be in improving the lives of animals, it is imperative that we keep our goals in mind, even when it feels like we are not making much progress. If not us, then who? This is what motivates her to keep speaking up for animals.
With accounting and IT backgrounds and having worked in both corporate and small businesses in over nine different industries, Lourdes has gained great insight in the operations and managing of businesses.
Her passion to bring animal cruelty to an end has seen Lourdes participate for 25 years in many events held by animal charities nationally as well as being a Toastmaster member for eleven years and the fundraising co-ordinator for the RSPCA.
