BOARD OF DIRECTORS

GEORGEANNE IRVINE

Board Member

When Georgeanne Irvine, who goes by “George,” was a child, she slept with a dozen stuffed animals on her bed―a lion, two teddy bears, a tiger, a monkey, and more. It was indicative of what was to come: a lifelong career at the San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance as a champion for wildlife and conservation, as well as an author of more than two dozen children’s books about animals.

Photographing and learning about animals in their native habitats are passions for George. Her worldwide adventures have taken her to many of the wildest places on Earth―from the jungles, mountains, and forests of Asia and South America to the savannas of Africa and the Outback of Australia. George has devoted nearly 45 years of her colorful career to the San Diego Zoo and San Diego Zoo Safari Park, where she is Director of Publishing.
