Sean Conlon, Founder

Originally from Ireland, Seán now calls Chicago and Malibu home. Forever conscious of his roots and in giving back, Seán is a regular contributor to a wide variety of charitable organizations. Seán's real passion lies in conservation and animal welfare. A passion and drive that is equalled by his sister Fiona. Together they established Conlon Wildlife Foundation as a vessel to realise this passion.

Fiona Conlon, Founder

Fiona's passion is animal rescue and wildlife conservation. She has been involved with animal rescue centers and organizations since an early age; engaging in substantial volunteer work in Australia, Central and South America, Africa as well as the United States and Ireland. Fiona is a certified wildlife rehabilitator under the International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council (IWRC)

In 2007, Fiona, with her brother Seán, founded the SJ Conlon Animal Foundation — recently renamed The Conlon Wildlife Foundation — to further enhance their commitment to various animal projects. 



Seán and Fiona pay special tribute to their parents, John and Margo Conlon, who instilled in them such a love for animals.

The foundation has been set up in loving memory of John Conlon (1944-2000)
