Alison has two passions in life. The first showed up at age three, when she stood in awe, transfixed in front of the tigers’ enclosure at the Toronto Zoo. Her love of wildlife has since found its expression through her support of conservation organizations around the globe, beginning when she was fifteen. Over time, Alison has come to realize that the world’s people need help as well. Today, Alison is committed to international sustainable development with wildlife conservation as its figurehead.
