We sadly announce that PRC Board Member, Bob Anderson, died in a car accident in Tanzania-this month.

 

Bob Anderson Bob Anderson, died in a tragic car accident on a recent trip to Tanzania celebrating his 70th birthday. The accident occurred two days after Bob and his wife Grace climbed Mount Kilimanjaro. PRC and the conservation community have lost a true environmental hero and we are deeply saddened by his passing. "Bob's contributions to protecting the environment and special places are too long to list. Along with his many years of service to PRC, Bob led the fight to stop the damming of the Yellowstone River, he was a founder of the Greater Yellowstone Coalition, and a leader and advocate for renewable energy," said John Kober, PRC's executive director. "Bob accomplished so much in life, and he maintained an infectious enthusiasm and optimism that were part of his charm. We will miss him."
