Owens Foundation for Wildlife Conservation, Inc.
June 14, 2009

I have supported the Owens Foundation and Mark and Delia Owens for more than 20 years. Their practical, sustainable methods of saving wildlife by elevating the lives of local people is the answer for the rest of the world - a balance between man and nature.
