Biography:

Rosalind Aveling is Deputy Chief Executive of Fauna & Flora International. A primatologist and graduate of Bristol University, Rosalind spent her early career in Indonesia and central Africa, developing conservation initiatives for the Great Apes – orangutans, gorillas and chimpanzees. Often working from conflict zones has led to her particular interest in sustaining conservation through cycles of conflict or natural disaster. She is currently serving on the Technical Advisory Committee of the British Government's "Darwin Initiative" that assists countries around the world to fulfill their commitments under the Convention on Biological Diversity. She has also worked on a variety of corporate governance mechanisms, developing conservation partnerships with government, business, academic institutions and local groups around the world. In January 2016, she became the Chairman of Cambridge Past, Present & Future (CambridgePPF).
