Growing up in the majestic forest and lakes region of Northern Wisconsin in a family that eats, driinks, breathes, and sleeps Nature I have only the greatest love and respect for Gaia. As we watch the rapid dissolution of the integrity of the planet, it is Organizations like the Nature Conservancy that provide some of the best methods and visions for lessening an inevitable crippling of the global ecology. My next step is to begin creating artwork that will draw attention to endangered flora, fauna, and ecosystems. I plan on using most of the money to support further actions by Nature Conservancy.

I consider myself an ardent conservationist. But I recognize that we live in a complex world with competing agendas, many of which I don’t agree with, but which still have legitimacy. Conservation advocates cannot succeed by always and only saying “no” to development. We must have something positive to offer as a practical alternative. I don’t want strictly naysayers to advocate for conservationism. And I cannot rely upon the government to effectively advocate for the conservation causes in which I believe. I appreciate the philosophy that says, if we don’t want an area developed or despoiled, we should buy it and safely preserve it. It is our responsibility as individuals to act collectively to secure the earth’s future. That’s why I've joined the Nature Conservancy.

This is a better way for me to help us to protect our nature.

So I fly a lot for work and want to make amends for that. Is there a way to set up a monthly-donation cycle, particularly for carbon offset, without having to re-enter information every time? Thanks

Please tell your excellent employee, Gregory Fishbein, that we have made a gift to the Nature Conservaancy in his honor. Margot and Paul Zimmerman

People are greedy and the earth is way overcrowded with the worst species on the planet. We need to learn that we cannot exploit our world and that the wildlife all play a critical role in the ecosystem. I don't like people as a whole, you can tell!

I made a donation to TNC's Plant a Billion Trees program to celebrate the engagement of my niece Cristina and her fiancé Michael. They are setting down roots and looking to the future, so what better way to mark the occasion?

Given in honor of a 45th anniversary of a couple who shared many hiking and backpacking trips with us in the past. Could not think of a better way to honor these fellow nature lovers. We are both aware and support the preservation of special environments that the Nature Conservancy does.
