From ANIMAL PEOPLE, March 2010:
SAN FRANCISCO, NEW YORK–January 2010 leadership changes at
both the Sierra Club and the National Audubon Society appear to leave
both organizations squarely in the hunter/conservationist camp.
Michael Brune, 38, heading the Rainforest Action Network
since 2003, succeeded Carl Pope as executive director of the Sierra
Club, but Pope remained the senior figure in the organization, as
executive board chair.
Holding undergraduate degrees in economics and finance,
Brune previously worked for Greenpeace and the Coastal Rainforest
Coalition, now called ForestEthics.
