Asher Jay

Asher JaySpeaker, Creative Conservationist, National Geographic Explorer
Jay’s cause-driven art, sculpture, design installations, films, and advocacy advertising campaigns bring attention to everything from oil spills and dolphin slaughters to shrinking lion populations. Much of her best-known work spotlights the illegal ivory trade. Jay participated in the Faberge Big Egg Hunt in New York, where her work raised money for anti-poaching efforts in Amboseli. Her upcoming projects will tackle biodiversity loss during the Anthropocene, expose threats to the world’s most traded and endangered mega fauna, tackle overfishing in the Mediterranean and expose threats to Africa’s remaining lions.
