MEET YOUR
SAN DIEGO ZOO ESCORT

Georgeanne Irvine, Director of Corporate Publishing

San Diego native Georgeanne “George” Irvine has devoted 40 years of her career to the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park. She is currently the Director of Corporate Publishing but has also held positions in public relations and development.

George has served in many capacities during her tenure with the Zoo, all of which have a common goal: raising awareness about animals and wildlife conservation. Her duties have ranged from being a media spokesperson to escorting animals to television shows to creating collateral to help the Zoo raise millions of dollars each year for conservation and new exhibits. In her current position, she is writing books and overseeing San Diego Zoo Global Press.

A journalism degree from San Diego State University paved the way for George’s writing career. She is the author of more than two dozen children’s books about animals, including the Zoo’s new Hope and Inspiration series, which features true tales about Zoo and Safari Park animals that have overcome challenges in their lives. George is also the author of hundreds of magazine, newspaper, and web articles, many of which are illustrated with her photographs.

Major passions for George include traveling, photography, storytelling, Broadway musicals and, of course, animals. She lives for adventure travel and loves seeing wildlife in their native habitats. Her worldwide expeditions have taken her to some of the wildest places on Earth—from the jungles of Borneo and South America to the mountains of China and the glaciers of Alaska as well as the savannas of Africa and the Outback of Australia.
