Being on safari with Biologists Without Borders is remarkably different than going on safari. Sue Orloff invites guests into a world where passion, science and adventure coalesce (amalgamate ;)) to promote conservation. Her unique background as a wildlife biologist, curious world traveler and ardent advocate of African wildlife elevates the entire experience from just going on safari to being on safari. BWB succeeds beyond expectations in providing realistic experiences, comfortable accommodations, knowledgeable guides, and excellent researchers as resources. Whether it was watching the dehorning an endangered rhino, learning more about maligned hyenas, watching lions mate, the hippos, or sharing the road with cheetahs …being absorbed into the rhythm of each day was completely captivating. I will always remember Africa’s breathtaking beauty, and with immense respect, those dedicated to preserving this habitat. I have forever memories laced with gratitude and a humbling sense of responsibility….being there, on safari with Biologists without Borders.
I have followed this non-profit from the beginning when it was just a possibility, grounded in passion, to the purposeful player it has become. In Africa, Biologist Without Borders has contributed to anti-poaching efforts, funded research promoting conservation and partnered with others to acquire wildlife habitat. This is an exciting new non-profit.
I have known the founder, Sue Orloff, of Biologists without Borders for almost 40 years. There is no one more passionate about helping wildlife or more capable of accomplishing it. I am one of their biggest supporters.
I have been impressed by how much Biologists without Borders (BWB) has accomplished in the relatively short time they have been operating. Conservation projects from helping preserve elephant habitat to protecting lions from poaching, BWB is well on their way to becoming a top-notch charity for animal conservation. I am proud to be one of their donors.
Biologists without Borders was started by my childhood friend who has always loved animals. As a retired biologist, she finally was able to fulfill her life long dream to take action against the atrocities and paths of extinction that have been jeopardizing many of our larger animals. BOB works with national parks, wildlife reserves, and independent research organizations around the world that are in need of assistance with their research and management programs. Please join me in helping this organization save some of the most venerable, and threatened animals on our planet.
Having worked for a number of non-profits and served on the boards of others, I can say that BWB has the key qualities worth supporting: dedicated, expert leadership; focus on problem-solving; vision for long-term impact; 95% of donations spent on projects. BWB works directly with wildlife reserves that have identified threats to species but lack the resources to resolve them. The needed scientific experts, equipment, training, and other support are then provided through BWB. Project research and results are made available to assist wildlife reserves and government agencies worldwide.
This is a small company with a big heart- funding scientific studies, buying conservation land, and supporting anti-poaching operations to protect African wildlife. The president, Sue Orloff, is devoting her life to this effort and teaming with other conservation organizations and parks to conduct research intended to save species in peril. BWB also supports graduate students looking for meaning thesis projects.
I have personally met all involved...great people, great works...extreme dedication and commitment in helping to preserve the wilds of Africa
