The Founder

Aslihan Gedik, also commonly called Asli among her peers, is the founding chairman and Chief Conservation Officer (CCO) of Wild at Life e.V..

During her nine-to-five hours, she works as an investment banker. With over two decades of experience, Asli uses her strong knowledge of banking and sustainable finance to tackle the problems threatening wildlife and biodiversity.

As a passionate animal activist, she has dedicated much of her life to protecting and rescuing abused, orphaned, and neglected animals. For example, she plans and conducts war-zone missions, most notably the abandoned zoo mission in Syria in the summer of 2017.

Additionally, Asli is a natural disaster response expert and has overseen rescue missions for earthquakes, wildfires, and floods.
