Miami partner Martha Rabbitt was recently appointed to the Zoo Miami Foundation’s (ZMF) Board of Directors.
Zoo Miami Foundation (ZMF), formerly Zoological Society of Florida, is the private non-profit support organization for Zoo Miami. ZMF, backed by loyal Zoo Supporters, allows Zoo Miami to continue mission-driven initiatives and zoo enhancements to encourage an appreciation for the world’s wildlife and to conserve it for future generations.
Martha most recently advocated for the Zoo as a member of the Wild Bunch, a group of like-minded young professionals dedicated to championing wildlife conservation and bringing community awareness to the mission of Zoo Miami. As up-and-coming community leaders, Wild Bunch members experience Zoo Miami from an exclusive perspective through networking opportunities, volunteerism, animal encounters and priority access to Zoo Miami events and adventures.
“I am honored to have been appointed to the Zoo Miami Foundation Board of Directors and am looking forward to continuing the long-term connection between Shutts and ZMF,” said Martha.
By joining the ZMF board, Martha follows in the footsteps of Aliette DelPozo Rodz and William Gallwey, two Shutts Miami attorneys with longtime ties to the Zoo and former members of the Zoo Miami Foundation.
“I am so pleased to celebrate my friend and colleague Martha Rabbitt as the newest member of Zoo Miami Foundation’s Board of Directors,” Aliette said. “Martha understands the powerful and unique roll zoos play in global conservation, and she will bring an aspirational vision to help the organization reach its potential as we all work together to improve the lives of people, animals, and the environment.”
