What Does Your Donation Support?

Monitor Vermont's Most Vulnerable Wildlife.

To conserve something, you need to know where it is and what it does. Your donation supports our work to monitor a diversity of species including songbirds, salamanders, butterflies, and bats to better protect wildlife.

Protect Critical Habitats.

With your gift, we protect and improve habitats necessary for the survival of species, such as nesting sites for spiny softshell turtles, and caves where many of our bat species hibernate.

Assist Conservation Planning.

We provide up-to-date, verified information about rare species and significant natural communities to help local conservation and planning efforts.

Spotlight Vermont's Rare Wildlife.

We develop science-based guidance for homeowners, landowners, and businesses about ways they can help wildlife, and we provide opportunities for Vermonters of all ages to learn about and to help Vermont's threatened and endangered wildlife.
