Meet the New Executive Director at Wolf Hollow


Wolf Hollow welcomes Amy Saxe-Eyler as its new Executive Director.

Amy is a seasoned finance leader with a personal passion for education and observing and preserving natural resources.  

She moved to Orcas Island in 2009 after a successful career in banking and was the Manager of Member Services and Energy Savings at OPALCO until late 2015.  

Amy has a long history of volunteering and fundraising and served on the boards of Salmonberry School and the Friends of Moran on Orcas Island.  She now lives on San Juan Island with her husband and daughter.

“I’m excited to bring my finance and leadership skills to Wolf Hollow, an organization that so closely mirrors my core values” said Amy. “I have admired Wolf Hollow’s mission and expertise for many years, but to witness the day to day operations from the inside is nothing short of amazing. There is a magnitude of knowledge and spirit among our small staff, board, and volunteers. The grounds and facilities on San Juan bear witness to the longevity of service to wildlife – almost 35 years. I look forward to sharing Wolf Hollow’s history and vision with a wider audience, to renew bonds with the wonderful people who have supported us over the years, and to breathe new life into our membership programs and fundraising efforts. These are all essential for Wolf Hollow to continue its mission now and for many years to come.”

The Wolf Hollow board and staff would like to extend a warm thank you to Julie Duke who was our Executive Director for the past two years. After stepping down from this position, she joined our Board of Directors and is helping provide a smooth transition as Amy steps into this role.

Wolf Hollow is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving all of San Juan and Skagit Counties and north Whidbey Island.  It was established in 1982 to promote the well-being of wildlife and their habitats through rehabilitation of injured and orphaned wildlife, public education and non-invasive research.  Since its inception, Wolf Hollow has provided care for over 16,000 animals with the aim of releasing them back into the wild.
