Board of Directors

Animalia’s Board Members assist in the development of the non-profit public charity. Animalia’s Executive Director reports directly to the Board. The diverse makeup of the Board of Directors is reflected in the many areas of expertise represented. With the help of this dedicated group of volunteer professionals, Animalia will continue to grow and develop as it continually seeks to improve its services to the community through its education programs, behavior consultations, and wildlife rehabilitation.
