Board of Directors

The Fauna Foundation is governed by volunteer board members, who lead the organization toward fulfilling its mission in accordance with its strategic plan and governing documents. This team of board members sets policy, establish the organization’s strategic directions, provides sustained leadership opportunities including growth and development, engages in resource development functions, and manages risk by appointing key personnel.

 

Advisory Board

The Fauna Foundation Advisory Board serves in an advisory capacity to the Fauna Board of Directors and Trustees on issues including legal, ethical and practical matters. Various advisory team members also provide networking connections between Fauna and other organizations within the sanctuary, animal rights and environmental communities.

 

Trustees

The Fauna Foundation Trustees are the legal guardians responsible for the welfare and actions of the organization. With the assistance of our Board of Directors and Advisory Board, the Trustees team oversees day-to-day operations and upholds Fauna’s values and mission.
