Statement on the fatal accident of former volunteer Dianna Hanson

We are shocked and saddened about the death of our former volunteer Dianna Hanson yesterday in an accident at a California wildlife park, where she had been working as an intern.

In 2011 and 2012, Dianna worked with the Snow Leopard Trust at our Seattle office as a volunteer. She did outstanding work for us; helping with events, product sales and marketing. We will greatly miss her passion, enthusiasm and radiant personality. Our thoughts are with her family.


Eric Ash says:

Our lives are determined not by our skills, but by our choices. Choosing to volunteer for a great cause gives one’s life meaning, an achievement that too few achieve.

From one volunteer to another, thank you for your work for the snow leopards. Rest in peace.
