Jordi Casamitjana is IFAW’s Campaigns and Enforcement Officer in the UK office currently working mainly on domestic issues, such as the Hunting with Dogs campaign. He manages the team of Wildlife Crime Investigators that go out monitoring UK hunts to gather evidence of illegal activity.
Originally from Catalonia (Spain), but resident in the UK for several decades, Jordi joined IFAW in mid-2012, after some years of being a freelance animal protection consultant. Jordi has a background in Zoology, in particular animal behaviour, and for over 20 years has been involved in different aspects of animal protection, working as scientific researcher, undercover investigator, animal welfare consultant and animal protection campaigner, both freelance and for well-established animal advocacy organisations in different countries. His most notable work has been his involvement with the first successful prosecutions under the Hunting Act 2004 (when working for the League against Cruel Sports), and his participation in the campaign that led to the ban of bullfighting in Catalonia.
