Honorary National Directors

Honorary National Directors

We do not wish to presuppose that Wild Ones are the only people with the goal to heal the Earth and the ability to influence others. With that in mind, we feel it is important to recognize people who have contributed greatly to our cause either through their personal contributions in healing the Earth or through their personal contributions toward advocating for Wild Ones. One way we can recognize these people is to award them the title of Honorary Director.
