My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Global Insular Conservation Society, Seattle, WA, USA
GICS is meeting a critical and underserved need addressing the conservation needs of island endemic or geographically isolated species. A solution based organization, Global Insular Conservation Society has demonstrated commitment to doing a project well and committing to the follow up needed to ensure that the conservation outcomes are sustainable for years to come. The organization is growing at a sustainable rate so as to be able to build a successful suite of conservation programs. I believe the organization will make great inroads in biodiversity preservation and will continue to partner sound science with meaningful actions in all of the projects it takes on.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Have long term financing in place (a challenge most programs have!) so that Director, Edgar Fortune, can move from performing his role in a volunteer capacity to full time employment and to bring on a small number of staff to coordinate with the science and conservation partners GICS engages with.
