Hawai'i Wildlife Center Executive Director Linda Elliott

Linda Elliott is the founder and Executive Director of the Hawai'i Wildlife Center, now under construction in Hala'ula, Kohala, Hawaii.  When the center is complete, it will be a state-of-the-art facility for the rehabilitation of sick, injured and contaminated native wildlife.

Linda is a graduate of Kalaheo High School and holds a B.S. in Wildlife Biology from Arizona State University and is the only oiled wildlife response manager in the region.  Linda's passion and dedication for wildlife began before she was ten years old.  She will tell you that her earliest life defining moment was when she saw the movie, "Born Free,"  From that point forward, Linda has pursued her passion for wildlife and conservation.  It is hoped that with continued financial support, it is hoped that the center will be able to be completed before the end of the year.
