Rainforest Rescue welcomes Dr. Adrian Volders to Board of Directors
We are thrilled to announce the appointment of Dr. Adrian Volders to the Rainforest Rescue board.
Adrian comes with a wealth of knowledge and experience, with a PhD in Environmental Economics and as the currently serving Chair of Queensland Trust for Nature. Adrian has been a highly successful consultant over the past decade working on a number of environmental restoration, science and large infrastructure projects. Prior to this he has been the CEO of several organisations and worked extensively across the water and natural resource management sectors.
“Joining RR is significant for me because I wanted the chance to make a difference to conservation outcomes. The rainforests of Australia are incredible and unique ecosystems and I just want to help preserve them.”
Rainforest Rescue has been on the move and increasing its capacity significantly in the last year and a half, from streamlining our office systems to filling staff vacancies, bringing in new capacity to help improve our ability to manage relationships and communications, engaging with the Australian conservation collective to encourage more funding for nature reserves and conservation efforts, developing significant partnerships for greater rescue and restoration opportunities in Far North Queensland…while achieving strong conservation outcomes for nature. The list is inspiring!
And now we’re bringing in new energies and capabilities to our committed board of directors.
I see a healthy organisation that is getting ever better.
As CEO I’m thrilled to see movement forward at every level of Rainforest Rescue. For me it’s indicative of a growing level of interest in conservation efforts in the Daintree Rainforest, recognising its intrinsic value and unique offerings. It also means that we’re doing truly valuable work and making a powerful difference.
With a strong staff, a strong board, strong programs…and strong community of supporters like you, we are going to continue to Protect Rainforests Forever.
