Rita Silva is an animal rights activist and vegan (not only in the diet, but vegan in every aspect of life). Rita`s decision to devote her life to the cause made her start working at ANIMAL in 2004, first as a volunteer and then as a member of staff, becoming later part of the board. She worked as a field officer (in undercover investigations) and currently works as a professional campaigner. Rita is working also for BUAV since 2011 and for its sister organization CFI since 2012. She lives in the countryside along with a number of rescued animals, a safe and non-public place where they can heal their physical and psychological traumas and live free till the end of their lives.
