Peter LaFontaine



Campaigns Officer for IFAW in Washington, DC, where he focuses on federal affairs and endangered species issues. He has previously worked as a policy advocate at the National Wildlife Federation and as an outdoor educator with the Cottonwood Gulch Foundation. Peter grew up in New Hampshire and is a 2005 graduate of Washington University in St. Louis. Peter was involved in the campaign to cancel NBC Sports “Under Wild Skies” in response to the outpouring of public anger over the sickening images of an elephant being hunted. IFAW calls for an end to all trophy hunting and advocates real, meaningful conservation efforts and community solutions that inhabit that gray zone where our laws—what we’re allowed to do—haven’t caught up to what we should do. http://blog.nwf.org/author/lafontainep/
