Hi! We are Thyra and David Rutter! Two, 51+ YR's who left our stressful corporate jobs (He- Restaurant Manager/She- Sales Executive) to travel and raise money for endangered species- specifically elephants!

Together we have a business- Arte for Elephants-(you can find us on Instagram, Facebook AND Etsy) we travel N. America attending arts/craft fairs and selling original artwork! A portion of every sale goes to support 503 (c) charities that work to improve the lives of both wild and captive elephants!

We are VERY quiet, no children (except our two little dogs) we just love meeting new people, hiking and working on our art projects-- David is a published author--

Formerly we were AirBNB hosts (and guests) for years, where we enjoyed 5 star ratings for both hosting/guesting! We are just travel bugs and do like to head overseas once or twice a year to volunteer with intl. conservation charities, like the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya, or Wildlife SOS in India!

We're pretty easy going and very respectful, looking forward to new friends, new discoveries and having fun! Cheers!
