Dotty Ballantyne, record-holding fisherman and noted conservationist, has agreed to join the Earthjustice Board of Trustees.

“For as long as I have been involved in conservation organizations I have been keenly aware of the work Earthjustice does in winning critical court battles to help other groups achieve their missions,” said Ballantyne. “Earthjustice is the teeth of the conservation movement.”

Ballantyne lives in Bozeman, Montana, spending her winters in Key West, Florida. She has been involved in local, regional and national conservation organizations, serving on the boards of American Rivers, the Greater Yellowstone Coalition and the Gallatin Valley Land Trust in Bozeman.

“We are incredibly pleased to welcome Dotty to the Earthjustice Board of Trustees,” said Earthjustice President Trip Van Noppen. “She has been a great supporter of our work and brings impressive knowledge and dedication to this role.”

After retiring from a career in the financial services sector, she did international consulting in England, Australia and Lithuania. She received her Bachelor of Arts from Sarah Lawrence College and a Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Wisconsin.

An avid fisher, Ballantyne has been profiled by the American Museum of Fly Fishing and featured in other publications for her record-breaking fly rod catches for salt-water fishing.
