Join the Herd

Working to save highly endangered species here in Rhode Island and across the globe is a major focus in our conservation work. Last year, we signed on in support of 96 Elephants, a worldwide campaign started by the Wildlife Conservation Society to help raise public awareness of the increased rate of African elephant poaching.
