Biography

Joan Embery has served as a champion of environmental and conservation issues around the world, most notably as spokeswoman for the Zoological Society of San Diego. She has had the opportunity to express her passion for animals with a multitude of audiences from youth to veterinary students to corporate executives. Her work has included hundreds of television shows as diverse as The Tonight Show, CBS This Morning, PBS programs, Hollywood Squares, Mr. Rogers, Entertainment Tonight and her own syndicated series Animal Express and Animals of Africa.

In addition to her many public appearances, Ms. Embery has led wildlife expeditions to such exotic locales as Africa, China, Nepal, India, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, Tasmania, Thailand, and the Amazon. She is the author of The Good Dog Book (Avon Books 1993), On Horses (Morrow 1984), Amazing Animal Facts (Delacorte 1983), and My Wild World (Delacorte, 1980).

In 2004 Joan created her own non-profit foundation, The Embery Institute for Wildlife Conservation, with the mission of connecting people to wildlife and conservation issues and the role each individual plays in insuring healthy environments.

A San Diego native, Ms. Embery studied zoology and telecommunications and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication. While she is most well known for her work with exotic animals, she is also an accomplished horsewoman, having won trophies in almost every discipline from dressage to cutting and driving to jumping. She lives on a 50-acre ranch in Lakeside, California with her husband Duane Pillsbury where she has raised and trained Quarter horses, Miniature horses, Lipizzans, Warmbloods, Mules, Clydesdales, Percherons, and her California State Grand Champion Brahman Bull, Bruiser. She also manages a community equestrian facility.
