Be inspired. I sure am by The WYldlife Fund.
My passion derives from what The WYldlife Fund stands for and represents. I am proud and honored to serve on this board for a number for reasons.
First, the diversity of our board makes me proud. It takes all kinds to be creative, our diversity allows us to serve and represent ALL users of wildlife in Wyoming. Everyone has a seat at the table and all voices deserve to be heard. This mindset allows us to provide diligence and a wholistic approach towards our mission of uniting people to advance Wyoming wildlife habitat, research, and education. Second, the leadership of our President and Executive Director has been a driving force. We have come so far in such a short amount of and time and this is an indication that we will not fail.
I believe one day soon, we will join our fellow not for profit organizations throughout Wyoming and become a driving force and leader in advancing wildlife. The wildlife of Wyoming offers incredible opportunities for its citizens and we are working hard to do our part in helping to make this resource even better.
Lastly, The WYldlife Fund is a project driven organization and this excites me. We have issued $117,000 in grants since March of this year. We have supported critical projects such as wildlife crossings and aquatic invasive species prevention and detection measures. We are also fully supporting Wyoming Game and Fish Department Director Brian Nesvik’s Inspire a Kid program. Inspire a Kid is all about getting our youth into the great outdoors to become inspired and learn valuable life lessons which will stay with them. Getting our kids unplugged from their devices and plugged into Wyoming’s beautiful wild places is incredibly important to The WYldlife Fund.
It is an exciting time for our fund. Time and pressure are required to build anything that is great and we have the team to carry out the necessary work and accomplish this goal. The enthusiasm, knowledge, and unique dynamics of our Board of Directors poises us for success.
If you haven’t heard of The WYldlife Fund, you soon will. Please contact our Executive Director to be inspired by our mission.
