For ten years he worked for the Captive Animals` Protection Society where, as campaigns director, he was responsible for devising and coordinating all research, campaigns and undercover investigations into animal circuses, zoos, and the exotic pet trade.
He now works as a UK-based animal rights researcher and consultant for a variety of organizations, advising on strategies and conducting in-depth research and investigations and writing reports. He also leads anti-poaching teams in the Mediterranean, protecting migrating birds from hunting and trapping, for the German charity Committee Against Bird Slaughter.
Involved in the Lush Prize as a researcher since its inception in 2012, Craig is now on the management committee that runs the awards which provide £250,000 (300,000€) each year to initiatives to help end animal testing.
