Review for NatureServe, Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

NatureServe is an invaluable coordinator for biodiversity data. With strict data standards, member programs from all U.S. state, Canandian provinces, and several countries around the world can share data to evaluate local, regional, national, and global biodiversity needs. But they also allow for certain flexibility for individual member programs to work within their own financial, political, and prioritization structures. The spatial database and onging technological advances and projects (handheld data collection software, observational database, sharepoint, climate change vulnerability index tool, etc.) keeps this organization at the forefront of conservation.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Coordinating with adjacent states for an evaluation of regional biodiversity needs; attending conferences and trainings which provide opportunities for cross-pollination of conservation ideas; use of climate change vulnerability index tool.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

It's willingness to work with us even with certain constraints we imposed to their normal data sharing structure.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Outgoing, dedicated, optimistic, helpful

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Do amazing scientific research, develop state-of-the-art technological advances for the people on the ground working for environmental conservation
