I would like to say congratulations to Rob and Harper at the Ocean River Institute. I have been so inspired by your work and was thrilled to read about recent clean water victories. The Ocean River Institute has faced numerous challenges in it's time but you two just never let it faze you - and now you're ever closer to protecting Florida's environment and the animals that live within it. Thank you for staying the course and speaking out about these issues. I wish you the very best."
Kellen, San Francisco, CA.

With the extent of pollution entering the waterways and the oceans of the world through plastics, oil and chemical spills, raw sewage, acid rain and heavy metals from fossil fuel use, the world needs groups that will take the initiative in, not only stopping the pollution, but also in cleaning up the mess that mankind is leaving for future generations. ORI's efforts in this direction have been, are and will be both inspirational and greatly appreciated. The world needs more groups with their dedication and leadership capability.

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

Initiate grant funding so their work could proceed on a wider scale - our problems are worldwide.

More feedback...

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

the dedication to their ideals and their spirit.

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

I have had only email contact with the organization, but their demeanor is cordial and their communication has been topical.

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

go broke trying to clean up the waterways and oceans of the world.

Ways to make it better...

it could have been in person

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

Mankind.

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

Do not give up. The challenges we face seem at times insurmountable, but collectively we are making a difference and given time, the results will be worthwhile.

ORI was instrumental at helping to organize fund-raising, international petitions and strategies in raising awarenenss about a crucial development in the BVI which would jeopardize a fisheries protected area. The case eventually went to court and we won. couldn't have done it without the tireless efforts of ORI, who continues to raise awareness in protecting the territory. The staff was sensitive and observant, guiding where needed and let others shine, a rare skill. ORI is approachable, sharp, well-connected and experienced. I will work with them again in a moment's notice.

The Great!

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

sparking local people to protect their own environment and to watch how ORI handles inquiries and ideas in a positive manner. ORI is greatly respected in the BVI.

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

the breath of knowledge and experience as well as political savy the director brings to every meeting. He never leaves a stone unturned while maintaining humor and inclusiveness.

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

very smart, dedicated, broad-thinking, educated, fun and willing.

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

it probably would help organize other smaller groups into a larger network while educating along the way. It would set up a user-friendly framework encouraging inclusion and action. It could expand their radio/ web program about the environs.

Ways to make it better...

we had more time.

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

as usual, financial. It does a great job sounding like thousands, when it is a dedicated few. I would say publicity. Their broadcasting and issues are enlightening and important today.

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

ORI fills a niche which helps smaller non-profits fullfill their goals with wisdom and guidance, great energy and ideas. They need to expand for the hundreds of other issues assaulting the world. They would definitely be an asset.

My experience is in ecological assessments and restoration, especially of endangered species. Most notably, stout iguana, red-legged tortoise, greater flamingo, and white-crowned pigeon. See my 2005 book: Island, Fact and theory in Nature (U. Cal. Berkeley).

The Great!

efforts to protect mangrove swamp, salt ponds, and other natural habitats in the British Virgin Islands.
