Jodie Graham

Board Adviser and Finance

“Nature should be protected as if it were life itself – it is literally the air we breathe.”

After years of fostering shelter/stray dogs, she became aware of the tortured lives that elephants and other wildlife live as circus animals. This was the start of her love for elephants, her desire to make a difference, and what lead her to GMFER. She co-organized the first GMFER March in Augusta, GA .
