Laetitia Nunny is a researcher and advocate, specialising in wild animal welfare and with a particular interest in marine mammals. She completed the Masters in International Animal Welfare, Ethics and Law at the University of Edinburgh where her dissertation focused on the welfare of seals that were being shot under license.
In recent years, Laetitia Nunny has worked as a freelance consultant on animal welfare and conservation issues collaborating with various organisations including the Humane Society International and the Animal Welfare Institute. She has published papers on solitary-sociable dolphins, harbour porpoise conservation in Europe, predator control on land and at sea, and welfare issues related to seal killing. She has also worked as a consultant for the United Nations, writing documents on the issue of light pollution for the Convention on Migratory Species (CMS).
Since joining the OceanCare team, Laetitia Nunny has worked on a number of projects including acting as the editor and co-author for several chapters of the «Under Pressure» report, which highlights the many challenges facing cetaceans in Europe. She also contributed to and edited the «Quiet Waters for Whales and Dolphins» report regarding the Mediterranean Cetacean Migration Corridor.
Laetitia Nunny also helped in the preparation and delivery of two international workshops in 2021; one on climate change held under the auspices of the International Whaling Commission, and the second focused on out of habitat marine mammals.
Laetitia Nunny is passionate about defending marine wildlife and believes that these animals are often overlooked and their welfare badly impacted by the ever-increasing activities of people at sea. She is delighted to be part of the OceanCare team and hopes through her work with OceanCare to shine a bright light on these issues and ensure that they are addressed.
