The David E. Ellis Conservation Fund will support animal health care, animal facilities and species recovery.
Ellis led the animal park for nearly 28 years before dying July 17 at age 65.
He was known for his love of animals, kind, adventurous spirit and dedication to showing people how exciting the outdoors could be. Ellis helped Northwest Trek receive and keep accreditation, expand its animal collection and work toward preserving multiple species.
Donations can be made to the Northwest Trek Foundation, a nonprofit organization used to support programs and projects at the wildlife park. Mail to:
