SOPHIE STAFFORD

COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER

Sophie is an independent communications and photography consultant for leading wildlife conservation charities, including WWF, improving supporter engagement through the power of visual story-telling.

For nearly 10 years, she was the Editor of the award-winning British magazine BBC Wildlife Magazine. In that role, Sophie was co-manager and judge of the world-leading Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition in London. Today, she continues to join the juries of, and advise, prestigious photo competitions, from World Press Photo in Amsterdam to Mexico’s Por el Planeta

Day to day, she works closely with photographers from all around the world to help them bring their work to wider audiences through exhibitions, books and other media.

Sophie first came face-to-face with the suffering that poached rhinos endure when she met Thandi, a very special rhino who not only survived a brutal attack but went on to give birth to a beautiful calf. Find out more about Thandis story of hope amid the current poaching crisis.

The thought of a world without rhinos is unbearable. I am proud to be part of RCB and to know that every rhino we rescue and bring to safety in Botswana is one more small flicker of hope for their kind.”
