The Biodiversity Conservation Alliance is a strong, grass-roots, environmental group that works tirelessly to safeguard Wyoming's natural attributes, which are constantly under pressure in many ways, but especially from oil and gas extraction and associated industrialization of Wyoming landscapes. If you love Wyoming's natural places, consider donating to BCA. They accomplish much with a small budget thanks to the dedication of their staff. An example is the fight to protect the unparralleled beauty and solitude of the Adobe Town area from development.

The Biodiversity Conservation Alliance (BCA) is a smart, science-based environmental group that works tirelessly to protect the frequently maligned landscapes and ecosystems of Wyoming and bordering areas. The staff works all the time and is impressive in the amount of hard scientific research that they do to contest ecological unsustainable or unreasonable development in the region. They deserve a huge amount of credit for protecting Wyoming in the face of the relentless oil and gas industry and other industries that put profit before sustainability.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

almost all aspects of land protecting in Wyoming and in national campaigns to reign in oil and gas development.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

BCA is a hard hitting, no nonsense group that provides wildlife and natural places a strong voice to counter forces of exploitation and damage. But, in addition to their work to halt the damage, BCA also provides science-based conservation plans and positive alternatives to the status quo.

saving natural areas on public lands administered by the BLM and U.S. Forest Service.

This is a no-nonsense, pro-environment organization that provides a good balance between first trying to convince by reason and, if that doesn't work, going after the problem following law and the courts. The Director is a brilliant and seriously committed advocate for nature. He is not afraid to deal with -- mix it up with -- the largest of public or private agencies. He gets things done and decisions made! His small but dedicated staff is allowed to operate semi-autonomously, but internal communication remains strong and positive.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the protection of forests, grasslands, and alpine mountain-tops. Preservation of landscapes is emphasized over conservation of landscapes.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

be incompetent and the organization would fail and sink into oblivion.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

observing the passion among the staff members in protecting remote areas of Wyoming and the Black Hills that seem forgotten by the other, better funded, environmentally oriented organizations.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated, competent, and irrepressible. I'd want them on my side of the discussion!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

better assure that landscapes are left intact and biologically functional. It could help Mother Nature maintain her original balance and selective advantages.

Ways to make it better...

I were better informed about the full range of the staff's activities.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

budgetary insolvency. This is the only hindrance to success in purpose.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I despise this kind of question.
