How You Can Help

Every day brings new insights, new appreciation, and greater respect for the beautiful and complex wonders of nature that we are diligently studying. As a result, we’re driven to undertake larger and more ambitious projects, with the hope that we are doing something to make our planet a better place.
Our primary tasks are to procure detailed information on the endangered animals that we study and the habitats they depend on; to share this information with key decision-makers and the public; and to train the next generation of conservation biologists.
Our work would remain incomplete, however, if we failed to cultivate the concern and support of others to preserve and nurture the many forms of life that share the planet with us. If you are interested in partnering with us, please consider making a financial contribution to our effort. Your gift could make an enormous difference. Your tax-deductible donation could, for example:
- Support a specific exhibit, with signage credit given to the sponsor (see exhibit costs).
- Support a specific student research fellowship (at either the Master’s or Doctoral level), which could be named by the sponsor if desired ($10,000 to $20,000).
- Support a specific outreach program that can be initiated with your gift (e.g., public school education; native American education; nature television programming).
- Support the Center at a 5-year ($1.3 million) or 10-year level ($2.7 million), with the Center named by the sponsor if desired. Incremental payments are acceptable.
Your gift can be made online by clicking here and selecting the “Make a Gift” and “Center for Biodiversity and Conservation” options . Feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss further your interest in giving.
