'Why We Need to Campaign for Rights, Not Welfare'

Ayrton is the Campaigns Manager for Animal Justice Project, having worked with the organisation since 2018. He conceives strategic pressure campaigns, targeting industry leaders and so-called ‘higher welfare’ farming standards.

This includes creating educational resources, planning national days of action, online rallies, street demonstrations, and working with our investigations team to develop tactical campaigns. He lives with a dozen rescued companion animals from cats to tortoises to guinea pigs. Ayrton has a Bachelor of Science in Zoology from the University of Nottingham with key focuses in conservation and ecology. Every week, Ayrton volunteers for the Cinnamon Trust, walking dogs, and for a vegan-ran animal sanctuary. He is also a Trustee for another wonderful sanctuary. Outside of working in animal rights, he regularly forages wild food for himself and his animals.
