My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Natureserve, Arlington, VA, USA
The work done by NatureServe is important. In particular, global ranking is a valuable metric when choosing where to spend scarce conservation dollars. Also, the push toward a standardized methodology facilitates the synthesis of information from multiple states and provinces and makes analysis of multi-jurisdicational projects more feasible.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the willingness of NatureServe staff to provide support to and facilitate communication between heritage programs from all across North America.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
enthusiastic and dedicated to the protection of biodiversity.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
upgrade to more modern software tools, develop new tools and methods for scientific data collection, and improve the way biodiversity concerns shape public policy.
Ways to make it better...
the database management tools necessary for maintaining the data were modernized.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
lack of funding and the difficulties inherent in working with many different programs across numerous jurisdictions.
