Review for Earthwatch Expeditions, Inc., Maynard, MA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

As a long-time volunteer, I know many of the staff at Earthwatch, and they are nice, for the most part. But I don't know what's going on there now because they have lost two top executives and the CEO has been forced out by the staff in the UK office. I'm not giving any more of my money to this organization until it straightens itself out. It needs to be more transparent. There is in-fighting at leadership and staff level between the US and UK offices and they have major money woes.

Review for International Fund for Animal Welfare, Inc., Yarmouth Port, MA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

i recently found out that IFAW uses most of its money for fancy international travel, and my donation pays salaries instead of helping animals. Don't believe the hype that they put out. The CEO makes more than $500,000 a year and his executives aren't far behind. They are abusing donors.
