PWR is a fantastic organization dedicated to the conservation of black-footed ferrets and all prairie wildlife and habitat. PWR has made (and continues to make) a tremendous effort helping BFFs in South Dakota, Kansas, New Mexico, Canada, and many other places where they are currently found. Thank you PWR!!

I have had the privilege of working on a ferret project in Kansas that Travis has helped with, and I have had the opportunity to hear him speak to a group as well as individuals. He is very passionate and knowledgeable, and truly dedicated to prairie conservation. I support his organization through donations and by directing people to his very informative web site to learn more. Prairie Wildlife Research is awesome!!!!

I have worked to save prairie dogs for well over a decade and have truly enjoyed the partnership and work ethic of the folks with Prairie Wildlife Research, Inc. Travis has been more than willing to share information whenever it is needed and has always been a great help with prairie dog issues we face daily. We have discussed everything from the best traps for our work and details in working with government agencies. It takes all of us working together to save our prairies and all of the wildlife we love and appreciate on our prairies.

Black-footed ferrets are a very endangered species. Unfortunately they do not get the headlines or the evening news coverage they need. Prairie Wildlife Research has been the group spreading the word about black-footed ferrets and actually working directly with the ferrets in the wild. Travis and Prairie Wildlife Research have worked hard to stop the plague outbreak and are working hard to reintroduce black-footed ferrets to new recovery sites. Without Prairie Wildlife Research, the world might be without black-footed ferrets!

The Great!

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

many ways. I was able to help Travis and other wildlife biologists work on the black-footed ferrets up in South Dakota!

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

how they have done so much for black-footed ferret recovery!

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

all great. Can not say anough good things about Travis and this group.

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

do a lot of good. More recovery sites could be found and more black-footed ferrets could be helped.

The story of the black-footed ferret is an almost unbelievable natural resource success story. The program started with a dog dragging a dead ferret onto a ranch near Meeteetse WY, moved to capturing what seemed to be a doomed few ferrets, to designing and implementing a captive breeding program and finally getting them back out into the wild. Thanks to many dedicated people, groups and agencies the ferret program has been and continues to be a shining star. Prairie Wildlife Research, Inc. (PWR) has been at the center of the black-footed ferret program for a long time, I may go so far as to say that many of the successes of the entire program have been the direct result of Travis Livieri and PWR. I am not familiar with the work PWR has done at any other site but I am very familiar with the Conata Basin and know that the countless hours spent by PWR coordinating, spotlighting, chipping, vaccinating ferrets have been instrumental to the success of this program. Without the PWR working behind the scenes, in the mist extreme controversy and many private individuals, state and federal agencies, I don’t believe the ferret program in Conata Basin would be as successful as it has proved to be. This review comes from a federal employee who has been involved in the program on a professional basis. After seeing how the PWR works I believe in this organization enough to invest my own money. I have adopted ferrets for my granddaughters and nieces, because I know every dime I invest in this organization goes right back out on the ground to help the prairie ecosystem.

As various factors continue to threaten conservation of black-footed ferrets and prairie dogs, and ultimately many species of prairie habitats, Prairie Wildlife Research forges ahead with sound, conservation-minded field research. PWRs efforts have been critical in establishing and maintaining prairie dog and ferret populations, and in conservation of associated species and grassland ecosystems. PWR's commitment is unending and inspiring. The organizations efforts will be key to the future of ferret conservation and other conservation efforts in the prairies.

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

the opportunity to help and collaborate with PWR, and the kind and thoughtful biologists and conservationists within this group, during their important field research projects.

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

field biologists and volunteers with a deep appreciation for nature and wildlife and a desire to help conserve natural resources, including various mammals, birds, reptiles, insects, etc.

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

restore and protect many grassland habitats (and other habitats) occupied by an enormous number of species, and conserve natural resources important in wildlife conservation and the day-to-day activities of people.

I've worked as a colleague with Prairie Wildlife Research and Travis Livieri, who with a very modest budget is managing ferret recovery activities in the Conata Basin, South Dakota, the premier recovery site for the highly endangered black-footed ferret, and serving with Travis on the federal Black-footed Ferret Recovery Implementation Team. The dedication and commitment of this organization to seeing ferrets brought back from the brink of extinction has been instrumental in today's successful recovery program.

The Great!

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

Seeing federal and state wildlife management agencies taking affirmative steps to recover and manage ferret populations within their former range
