Where do your donations go?

Russell Mittermeier President (The person identified as holding the highest position of management, and therefore who would normally be responsible for carrying out the mission of the charity and leading the organization on a day-to-day basis.) of Conservation International (CI) got paid $340,000 in 2006 - the most recent annual figures available.
