About Lyn

Lyn White – Campaign Director and Investigator, Animals Australia

Lyn is one of Australia's foremost animal advocates and lobbyists. A former police officer, Lyn spent much of her early career fighting on behalf of human victims but it is for her work as an animal advocate that she was honoured as a state finalist in the 2012 Australian of the Year, was named Crikey's 2011 Person of the Year, ABC NewsRadio's NewsMaker of the Year, and chosen by The Age as one of Victoria's top 100 most influential people.

Lyn's investigative work has featured numerous times on Australian Story, 60 Minutes, 7.30 Report and more recently on Four Corners, in a report that received the 2011 prestigious Gold Walkley award. Her work has resulted in unprecedented welfare advancements in a number of countries including Jordan, where she works as an adviser to the Royal family. Lyn's 2011 investigation in Indonesia awoke a nation's conscience and resulted in an astonishing 40,000 media stories over a five month period.

Fuelled by a desire to create a kinder world, Lyn's investigations in over 11 different countries have taken her to places few would want to visit. She retains an absolute belief in the human spirit and her work presents an inspiring example of how one individual with passion, courage and conviction can make a profound difference.

Lyn's life experiences are unique and provide an insight into the systems of justice in place for humans and animals. She presents a compelling argument that the causes of human and animal suffering are the same — and that we cannot address one without addressing the essence of both.

Moreover, she deeply challenges the essence of our humanity by advocating that we are not simply here to be human beings — but to become humane beings — and to leave this world a kinder and more compassionate place for those who follow us.

'What if the purpose of each new generation is to question...To identify where there are injustices and right them.  We would inevitably leave this world a kinder place for those who followed us.'
