The Alongside Wildlife Foundation

is creating a new way to support wildlife conservation

The Alongside Wildlife Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity dedicated to helping us share landscapes with wildlife; your support is tax deductible* (prefer PayPal?). Please also set us up as your Amazon Smiles charity so we get a donation every time you shop!

We are a grassroots organization that uses science and outreach to conserve wildlife. In 2018 alone, we awarded over $10,000 to wildlife projects around the globe and anticipate we will do it again by the end of 2019 (see what we have funded here). We also communicate science and a conservation message to tens of thousands of people every day throughout our online platforms. But you can help us do even more. The Alongside Wildlife Foundation wants to know how wildlife populations use landscapes and we want to help the people learning to live alongside them. Then, we want to communicate science and conduct public outreach to encourage an appreciation for the wildlife that are here and the wildlife that may someday return.

What makes us different? We are supported by a huge (and growing) network of small recurring donors. Your $1 or $2 a month is important and valuable to us while we find and fill the important niches overlooked by the conservation mega-institutions and agencies.

From David Steen, Executive Director of The Alongside Wildlife Foundation: Aldo Leopold said, “There are some who can live without wild things and some who cannot.” The Alongside Wildlife Foundation represents those of us that cannot! I am a wildlife ecologist and conservation biologist and I've published dozens of scientific papers about wildlife biology. Although I have spent much of my adult life preparing for a research career I've realized I also want to spend time putting science in action to conserve wildlife while helping others appreciate wild animals and wild places like I do. That's why I started The Alongside Wildlife Foundation.
