This April, we say farewell to Melissa Thomasma as our ED. Melissa is stepping down to focus on her family as they are expecting a new addition! Melissa has helped to build a strong foundation for this organization. We couldn't be happier for Melissa as she explores a new journey. Thanks to all of her dedicated work and eloquent writing. We wish her all the best ahead.
As Program Director, I've worked to build our public presence and gain public support both within the state and nationwide. I couldn't be more excited for what's to come for this organization and all of our followers. I am excited to take this much needed mission and build support across many different sectors to make a difference for our most vulnerable wildlife. Thank you to all of our supporters who continue to inspire and motivate us to speak for the wolves, bears, and other important Wyoming wildlife.
March was an extremely busy month at Wyoming Wildlife Advocates. We presented at the
Jackson Hole Wildlife Symposium
, attended and networked at
Sedona Wolf Week
, promoted Wyoming wolves at the Wild for Wyoming's Wolves Rendezvous at the Jackson Whole Grocer, discussed deeper education goals with other local conservation non-profits at a collaborative workshop, and continued to educate the public about Wyoming's need for wildlife management reform. Looking back, we are proud to have been a part in these activities and are looking forward to a very productive year ahead. Glad you have chosen to join us on this expedition into uncharted territory! I look forward to connecting with all of you as we march toward a better Wyoming for all wildlife.
