Ali Crumpacker Appointed Director of Fund for Animals Wildlife Center
The Humane Society of the United States and The Fund for Animals are pleased to announce that K. Ali Crumpacker has been appointed director of The Fund for Animals Wildlife Center in Ramona, Calif., one of five animal care centers in the country operated by The Humane Society of the United States and The Fund for Animals. Crumpacker assumed her new role on Monday.
“Ali’s education, experience and community involvement bring a fresh perspective to this extraordinary center. The mixture of wildlife rehabilitation and sanctuary animals offers unique opportunities for education, community engagement and collaborations. Ali has the passion and drive to embrace all of these and more,” said Debra Parsons-Drake, The HSUS’ senior director of animal care centers.
The Fund for Animals Wildlife Center has wildlife care, wildlife advocacy and wildlife conflict resolution as its key missions. Since 1984, the center has provided year-round rehabilitative care for injured and ill predatory species of wildlife, including raptors, bobcats, cougars and coyotes, and served as sanctuary for animal victims of the exotic pet trade who cannot be returned to the wild.
Crumpacker will manage fiscal operations, help develop and implement long-range plans for the facility and enhance outreach and programming at the center. She will oversee development, and work to raise the profile of the facility within San Diego County business, civic and social communities.
Crumpacker is a native of New Jersey and has established roots in the wildlife community of Southern California since 2006. She holds a master's degree in zoologic administration from George Mason University and a bachelor's degree in environmental studies from Ramapo College. Ali and her husband, John Crumpacker, reside in San Diego with their six companion animals.
