Cliona Kirby is a partner in a city law firm in London, advising clients in the real estate, media and technology sectors. She is also a keen diver and surfer. Having learnt to dive on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia over 30 years ago, her subsequent extensive travels have enabled her to continue to enjoy turtles gracefully floating around the ocean and coming to play in the surf.
Cliona is keen to ensure that this magical underwater world is preserved. Her involvement with the Olive Ridley Project began through sponsoring sea turtles for her nature loving niece. Now she aims to use her legal and business skills to help the Olive Ridley Project achieve its mission to protect sea turtles and their habitats.
