Review for NatureServe, Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I think NatureServe is an excellent organization, and has been a leader in science-based conservation in North America. The organization's combination of science-based methodology development with excellent technology tools makes it one of the true innovators in the environmental movement - they are the high tech organization for conservation in North America and perhaps beyond.

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


If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

ensure the culture of working as a network was shared more broadly with other organizations trying to accomplish similar things.

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

Learning more about taxonomy, and the importance of standards. Also about how networks can develop innovation.

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

From across North America.

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

Revolutionize how we view nature, and how we consider nature in many decisions we take for granted everyday.

Ways to make it better...

the organization had more funding to develop tools that promote the gathering of new data.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The demand for its work internationally, and how to connect with others around the world that are working internationally in similar areas.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I love the logo.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
