Who We Are
Read about the people behind Dhole Conservation Fund.
Chelsea Davis – Has worked with captive canids (wolves, foxes, African wild dog, coyotes and yes dholes) for over 10 years. Chelsea has also worked as a field tech in a variety of wildlife projects, traveling around the globe to aid in conservation projects. Working in the non-profit sector for over a decade and with special conservation project training, Chelsea decided to open a project for a animal close to heart but so one that she felt need some attention. She has a B.S in Animal Science form UC Davis, and a GIS professional certificate. She currently works for Washington State University in the research sector.
Bonnie McDonald - After working as a wildlife biologist across the West, Bonnie settled in Gardiner, Montana in 2015. She has worked with a variety of species, from wolves, cougars, and coyotes to elk and sage-grouse. She has a B.S. in General Biology from the University of California, San Diego and is currently working on her M.S. in Wildlife Ecology at Utah State University. Bonnie spent hundreds of hours observing elk to gather behavioral data for her research on prey vigilance behavior in a multi-predator system. While living in Gardiner, she has worked as an ecotourism wildlife guide, and most recently as biological research technician for Yellowstone National Park.

The Dhole Conservation Fund keeps overhead as low as possible. Although we can’t eliminate all expenses that aren’t 100% dhole driven (government and bank fees add up) we do try to limit them. We do not have a physical office; we rely on virtual platform.
