He is an advisory board member of Earthplace (“the Nature DiscoveryCenter” in Westport, Conn.) and the Atlantic Salmon Federation.

Joel credits his late grandfather, Joseph Cullman, 3rd, for his commitment to WWF and other environmental organizations. The two enjoyed a very close relationship, and Joel remembers his grandfather as both an adventurous traveler and a knowledgeable naturalist. Whether salmon fishing on the rivers of New Brunswick, Canada, hiking Adirondack trails, or exploring the backcountry of the Selous Game Reserve during an unforgettable WWF trip to Tanzania in the mid-80s, Joe Cullman was always eager to share his knowledge of and enthusiasm for wild animals and wild places with his grandson (and, of course, everyone else around him).
