Katie Moore

Program Director, Animal Rescue, International Fund for Animal Welfare

As IFAW’s Program Director for Animal Rescue, Katie directs IFAW’s animal rescue team and collaborates with partner organizations around the globe to save animals in crisis including disaster response, marine mammal rescue and research, and wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and release.


In Madagascar, Katie used techniques developed by IFAW's Marine Mammal Rescue and Research team in an attempt to save more than one hundred melon headed whales—deep water animals that had stranded themselves inside an estuary. She also provided guidance in gathering data to determine the cause of the incident.
