Goodbye and Good Luck Andy!

We are sad to announce that Executive Director Andrew Walker is stepping down from his role at BCI due to family needs in Florida. He leaves behind a proud legacy of leading the organization to an expanded global mission and a successful campaign to protect Bracken Cave from the threat of development, raising $21 million—together with BCI partners—in public and private funds to protect the 1,520-acre Galo tract.

“I leave Bat Conservation after three-and-a-half years—far too short a time, given the importance of our mission and the extraordinary people I’ve had the pleasure to meet and work with,” says Walker. “But I leave knowing the organization is on firm footing, with an energized staff and board ready to take BCI to the next level of performance.”

Beginning in June, Walker will be the new president and CEO of the Fish and Wildlife Foundation of Florida. We wish him and his family the best of luck!
