Rob Atkinson has also left now and they are in search of another CEO. The other co-founder left this year. The ones that need to go are the board of directors.

They have now rid themselves of the other co-founder Scott Blais. The BOD have replaced his $35k salary with 3 new director positions at an unknown cost. They never file their 990 until the last minute and then it is almost two years old.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the time before the BOD took over when it was a wonderful place.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get rid of the BOD before they do even more financial damage and harm the elephants.

MY ROLE:
Donor & Anything I can to help Carol Buckley get reinstated.

It just gets worse and worse for this once magnificent charity. A second lawsuit by another employee has been filed against The Elephant Sanctuary. Here is the link to the story.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the rescued elephants living as-free-as-possible life.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

boot out the current BOD and reinstate Carol Buckley.
