NEW YORK CITY (Sept. 21, 2016) — Jane Fraser, St. Simons Island, Ga., resident and president of the Stuttering Foundation, was recently appointed to the Conservation Council of Panthera, the world’s leading organization devoted exclusively to preserving “big cats.”
“The Conservation Council, established in 2010, is an advisory board that contributes to the direction of the organization and the implementation of Panthera’s mission,” said Panthera CEO, Dr. Alan Rabinowitz. “Jane brings the substantive input and strategic thinking we need as we grow and scale our programs.”
Panthera, founded in 2006, is devoted exclusively to preserving wild cats and their critical role in the world’s ecosystems.
