Nature and Culture International welcomes David Welborn as Chairman of the Board as it enters its 20th year of saving tropical forests and the many plant and animal species that call them home. A former president of San Diego Coastkeeper and avid outdoorsman, David and his wife Ann Hunter Welborn have served on NCI’s Board of Directors for the past 12 years. They have been particularly instrumental in funding NCI’s conservation work in Alamos, Mexico, where NCI owns and operates a 15,000 acre reserve that protects jaguars and other key species, and serves as a beacon of environmental education for the community.
In David’s words, “I have witnessed NCI’s increasing impact as we accelerate toward our goal of protecting 20 million acres by 2020. I am eager to grow NCI’s community of supporters here in San Diego and throughout the United States.”
