The Founder

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

During her nine-to-six 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.
