Robyn Beasley is an international flight attendant with American Airlines, whose love for travel and animals has led her to become a global educator, advocate, and fundraiser to support the ethical treatment of animals. Her passion for the world’s elephant population began while researching ethical ways to see elephants in Thailand. There, she found Elephant Nature Park, and after visiting ENP for a day — and then later volunteering for a week — her eyes were opened to the cruelty often inflicted on animals in the name of tourism. A year later, Robyn organized a group of 55 fellow flight attendants to travel back to Thailand with her to share her experience. They were instantly transformed into advocates themselves. For her leadership and advocacy, she was awarded American Airline’s highest honor, the Chairman's Award. She has continued to be an advocate for elephants and other animals, and as founder of Stews 4 Elephants, continues to educate, volunteer and raise badly needed resources to protect the world’s animal population. She makes her home in New York City.
Natalie is an American Airlines Flight Attendant who enjoys traveling and loves animals. She and her husband reside alongside three rescued cats and five parrots, and helped pair homeless animals with forever homes. When Natalie heard about Stews 4 Elephants Volunteer Week at Elephant Nature Park, she quickly signed up and has not missed a volunteer week since. She looks forward to continuing to support Stews 4 Elephants in its mission. Previous volunteer work includes several years at an American Airlines employee dedicated charity, and food delivery for local charities.
Loreen is a long-time advocate of animal welfare. She believes that all creatures should be free from exploitation and able to live their lives naturally. While she loves all animals, elephants have a special place in her heart. When she's not working at her day job as a technical writer in the Seattle area she likes to volunteer, organize events, and fundraise for non-profits that focus on animal welfare and advocacy. She's contributed her manual labor at Elephant Nature Park each year for the past several years and has also volunteered at Animal Care Egypt, Australian Bat Clinic, and an animal rescue in Costa Rica. At home in the US, she volunteered at a local cat rescue for several years as well as Sara's Sanctuary in Redmond, WA. Loreen is happy and proud to be work with S4E, an organization that is dedicated to and passionate about the cause of freedom for elephants.
