Love this organization! It is full of amazing people committed to making a real impact in the environment.
They work in collaboration with state agencies so their work expands throughout the Americas and Canada.
I truly recommend NatureServe. This is an awesome place to donate and make sure you are really helping make a difference in our Earth!
As a scientist, I am very particular about where I donate my funds to. NatureServe is one of the few organizations that not only want to make changes to the natural world but wants to do it in a smart and strategic way. They work with so many amazing organizations and partners to make effective and efficient conservation action. The amount of work they do on the budget they have is truly mind-blowing and I only hope they can continue to do more amazing work in the future!
NatureServe is a remarkable organization with outstanding programs, initiatives and personnel. In having worked closely with many NatureServe employees, I am continuously impressed with the overwhelming dedication, commitment and enthusiasm everyone has for such an incredible cause. I look forward to continuing my relationship with NatureServe.
I've been affiliated with NatureServe since they first launched and was a user and contributor of Natural Heritage data for many years prior. I'm a firm believer in the work they do as a fundemental building block for conservation work. It's not necessarily sexy and they don't spend money on slick calendars and gimmicky swag to sway prospective donors but they do the hard work to make sure that authoritative data and information are curated and available for agencies and the public to make informed decisions.
NatureServe is the information engine for conservation. They have a clear vision, top scientists, and great integrity to their work. While what they do isn't as glamorous as saving whales or fuzzy pandas, it's essential to conservation. I know the organization well and trust it with my donation.
As a professional ecologist and advocate for biological diversity, I rely on and desperately need good quality data when commenting on federal and state proposals that could negatively impact the environment and species of concern. NatureServe is the first place I go to in acquiring that data and information. They provide an invaluable service to their users in a professional and high quality manner, and without charge to boot. They are truly a GREAT non-profit!
