SKY ISLAND ALLIANCE
March 18, 2011

i took SIA's 5-day mammal tracking workshop in 2008 and volunteered with them on several occasions. They have top notch scientists working for them and do a great job of getting the general public actively involved and excited about conservation. They do so many different things from science to policy to education, they seem to be covering so many different bases in conservation, an approach I think is necessary to effectively make a difference for preserving wildlands and wildlife. If I could suggest anything it would be for some staff members to get additional training in professional public outreach and ethics so they can rise above some of the petty politics that exists between different conservation organizations in the area. However, I would say again that overall they are doing an outstanding job and I'd love to see them win more support for their efforts in preserving the Sky Islands.
