Stephen Best’s involvement in the environmental and animal protection movement began in the early 1970s after the making of Seal Song, a documentary about the Canadian seal hunt he produced for the International Fund for Animal Welfare.
Stephen served various organizations since then including the International Fund for Animal Welfare, the International Wildlife Coalition, Care for the Wild (UK), and the Toronto Humane Society as an executive and/or director. He has represented these organizations in various international diplomatic and academic forays. He co-founded the International Wildlife Coalition (US), Environment Voters ( Canada), and the Animal Alliance Environment Voters Party of Canada.
Currently, he develops and manages political, program, and fundraising campaigns for a number of environmental and animal protection groups. He has also written and produced communications, campaign, and fund raising materials for social development organizations, including Peaceful Parks, the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund ( Canada), and the Lubicon Legal Defense Fund.
Stephen does not work out of our main office but can be reached through his e-mail.
