Daphne Wood joined the Wildlife Foundation of Florida’s (WFF) Board of Directors in April 2003. Her service with the foundation is a natural extension of her lifelong commitment to promoting fish and wildlife conservation.
“I’m a great believer in consumptive use of renewable resources and support making recreational opportunities available whenever possible, without compromising the environment,” Wood said. “The Wildlife Foundation of Florida provides funding to critical research and projects our State needs to make ecologically-sound decisions.”
Wood is an officer and trustee of Tall Timbers Research Station (TTRS), an organization dedicated to fostering land stewardship. Actively involved with TTRS for 25 years, she is the chairwoman of the Easement Committee.
Wood’s other civic involvements include serving on the Thomasville (Georgia) Community Resource Center Board of Directors and the Executive Committee of the Foxhounds Association of North America.
Wood enjoys a variety of outdoor activities, including wildlife viewing, mounted fox hunting, and wing shooting.
