Wyoming Wildlife - The Foundation ( WW-TF), has announced the selection of Andrew C. Coulter of Lander as the organizations Executive Director. Mr. Coulter will assume his new position immediately, according to Sublette County rancher and WW-TF board chair, John Andrikopoulos.
Andrew moved to Wyoming in 1992 to help start the Wyoming chapter of The Nature Conservancy. With the Conservancy, he held a series of increasingly advanced positions, from Membership Coordinator to Director of Finance and Operations. Andrikopoulos added that "Andrew has the vision, integrity, knowledge and experience to make the Wildlife Foundation into the pre-eminent, non-governmental organization in support of the conservation of Wyoming wildlife and wildlife habitat."

Established in 1996 as the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of Wyoming, WW-TF recently became a component part of the Wyoming Community Foundation. WW-TF continues to maintain a close partnership with Wyoming Game and Fish Commission; and provided the Game and Fish Department with a philanthropic vehicle to help fill the gap between license fee revenues and the expenditure of conserving Wyoming's wildlife.
The Wyoming Community Foundation is a statewide nonprofit organization with total assets of over $70 million. Since its inception in 1989, the Community Foundation has awarded more than $25 million in grants to nonprofit organizations across Wyoming. The mission of the Wyoming Community Foundation is to connect people who care with causes that matter.
