We are a grassroots organization that uses science and outreach to conserve wildlife. We launched in 2018 and have already awarded over $30,000 to wildlife projects around the globe (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 and have created a fund to purchase and conserve land. 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 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.
