Meet Celeste Morales

Celeste has been working in the human and animal well-being space for nearly four years in various positions with the Vancouver Humane Society, the Institute for Human-Animal Connection at the University of Denver, and most recently as the Senior Director of Research and Development at Companions and Animals for Reform and Equity (CARE). She considers herself to be a scholar-activist in her work, and is deeply committed to pursuing social justice-oriented research related to the intersections of animals, people, the environment, and communities. Celeste is thrilled to be joining The Fur-Bearers, and says she is a proud Latina, dog mom to Harvey and Harlow, and has been vegan for nearly 10 years. Celeste was born in, and currently resides in, Vancouver, BC, which is situated on the stolen, unceded lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) & sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations.
