FINANCIAL REPORT, BOARD OF DIRECTORS, POLICIES
2019 Annual Report
2021 Board of Directors
At Keepers of the Wild, we have high standards of ethics not just in the care and treatment of the animals, but in all things we do. Because of this, all but one of our board members serve on a voluntary basis and receive no compensation for their roles. The single individual who is compensated is not paid for their role as a board member, but rather as an employee of Keepers of the Wild, as defined by our governing bylaws.
Furthermore, our CEO, President, and Vice President positions' annual salary are based upon many deciding factors, the main being the organization's revenue, as well as the overall operating expenses. Much the same way we do not take in animals we cannot afford to support, we do not compensate our employees with inflated earnings we cannot support. Sustainability is our key focus.
These same salaries are determined, voted on, and set forth by the acting Board of Directors, in accordance with KOTW's Bylaws.
