Lynda Cole has joined our board as a new Director and Jerry Koranda has stepped down. Jerry helped us through our transition to Asian Elephant Support, and he leaves us to pursue other interests and commitments. We greatly appreciate his service and wish him all the best. Lynda has a long-term commitment to conservation and animal care. She is also the Director of a turtle rescue and educational NGO, St. Louis Midwest Turtle & Tortoise Society, which is dedicated to the preservation of wild turtle and tortoise populations and to the care of animals already in captivity. We believe her experience and dedication will be of great benefit to the mission of Asian Elephant Support and we look forward to working with her to help Asian elephants in their range countries.
