A Woman Quits Her Job to Save Endangered Animals

After seeing a documentary about dolphins being killed, a Miami advertising director quit her job to protect endangered species.

Daniela Moreno, 32, has spent the last seven years working for a major US cable channel. After seeing the popular film “The Cove,” she relocated to Japan in 2014.

Daniela got increasingly enthusiastic about helping animals and got a new work at The Dolphin Project as the executive assistant to well-known environmentalist Rick O’Barry.

She traveled to India earlier this year to work with Wildlife SOS, where she helped to safeguard elephants, leopards, reptiles, bears, and other exotic species.

She then went to Zimbabwe to work on African lion conservation.

‘I feel like I gave up part of that world because it wasn’t for me anymore,’ Daniela, originally from Santa Barbara, said.

“It wouldn’t have mattered whether they offered me a counter-offer or a promotion,” she says.

“When I eventually left my work, I recognized that my life needed to go on somewhere else.”

I’m not sure where my sense of adventure came from.

My parents are constantly concerned that my vacations and activities may endanger me.

“I believe that we should constantly spend our lives as if it were our last.”
Daniela is an MBA student at The American University of Paris and is on vacation.
“I usually save money to pay my journey,” she explained.

“I worked really hard for many years and collected a significant amount of money, and I believe that the greatest way to spend money is to travel, explore, and help others.”

“I decided to document my work as an activist,” she explained. A few brands have lately approached me because they enjoy my message, substance, and photos. That’s when everything for me changed.”

“I feel happy and excited. I can finally say that I’m an animal and environmental activist.”

“I know this will become the job I always dreamed of having.
“Travelling while creating awareness, helping the voiceless, and having the support of amazing brands by sponsoring me.”
