Sky Island Alliance is doing some of the most innovative and important conservation work in the desert Southwest - from the critical science and analysis to the on-the-ground conservation and restoration work with springs, habitat, and species that represent the unique biodiversity of this region. I am an enthusiastic donor and proud to be part of this organization of dedicated professionals and volunteers.
As a Tucson native and lover of the outdoors, Sky Island Alliance is my absolute favorite local non-profit. The advocacy and collaborative nature of the work they do is so key to the diversity and beauty of our natural spaces.
I first became involved in 2015, through a friend's recommendation. This year, we have tripled our giving and become regular monthly donors. And I am now on the Board, and getting involved in some committee work.
Our family is also looking to adopt a Spring soon. Can't wait to see what Sky Island accomplishes in their next 25 years!
The work of Sky Island Alliance is unlike any other organization in the region! They are building strong partnerships, preserving wild places, protecting our region's precious water resources...and always having a lot of fun doing it!
If you have money, donate. If you have time, volunteer. If you have a voice, tell your friends about this great group!
I feel extremely proud to be involved in the conservation of the Sky Island Region as a staff member with SIA. We are able to achieve all we can in habitat restoration, wildlife connectivity, climate change adaptation study and more because we have the support of so many equally passionate volunteers and conservation partners in the U.S. as well as in northern Mexico.
Sky Island Alliance is a wonderful grassroots organization. They do great work restoring habitat, conducting important field surveys, advocating for the Sky Islands and raising awareness of the importance of plants, animals & the environment to our well being. One of their best features is how they involve members in all of the work they do. Keep up the great work! Paula H.
I am a volunteer and monthly donor, and full disclosure, also have had the honor of working for Sky Island Alliance for eight years! From wilderness to wildlife linkages and communications and development, I've watched this organization grow as I have grown in my many roles here. Although our budget and staff are small, we have a powerful impact in conserving the Sky Islands, and I am extremely proud of our work and our volunteers and supporters. What a fun, passionate group! Together we can get anything done - and we have! I give to only a few organizations, and this one remains on my list, and will for many years to come. The organization has seen many changes in the past year, and now we are poised for some really exciting and great things... there is no better place to give your time and money right now!
Sky Island Alliance is amazing! I was initially impressed with their conservation work in southern Arizona from stories and articles that I had heard and read. When I was about to jump into volunteer work with them--I found my own small community in need. My attention shifted toward my home, but --lo and behold-- SIA recognized my community's need as well. I soon found myself working side by side with SIA's amazing group of dedicated people.
I am grateful for all the work that Sky Island Alliance does in our region to protect and preserve the sky islands--and especially grateful for all the work they've done and continue to do in the little corner of the Patagonia Mountains that I call home!
This organization focuses on the conservation of a unique area with unique wildlife. They use donated funds wisely.
SIA has been organizing, teaching, encouraging local participation for the preservation of this incredible biodiversity that we call the Sonoran Desert. Who else goes out there and builds ladders in the cattle water tanks so that the frogs and other little water seekers can get in and get out safely!
These people DO! I give them triple Hip Hip Hoorays and five stars!
The scope of their mission crosses the national borders of USA and Mexico! Not always a savory endeavor in these times of border tragedies. However, I have faith that they will be the ones to succeed!
I know of no other grassroots organization who does so much to nurture the preservation, awareness, restoration, advocacy of cherished places. Their "place" is the sky island region of southwest Arizona and I have been supporting them for years. They put together tremendous volunteer outings with outstanding hands-on accomplishments, they reach out to the neighboring sky islands south of the border, they have raised an awareness of jaguars and are a strong voice of advocacy on their behalf, they work to preserve, protect, restore the land, as well as raise awareness of the greater need for conservation efforts in the area. This is one of the best action-oriented, boots on the ground, passionate and community minded groups I've ever encountered!
