Message from the Co-Founders
We are excited to introduce you to Ecologists Without Borders (EcoWB), a non-profit organization formed recently to enable ecologists from around the world to lend scientific expertise and time to address environmental problems, both natural and human-caused, wherever they occur. Our basic goal is to provide the technical and financial support necessary to restore and protect the ecological processes and components that sustain human and natural systems. The urgent need for ecological assistance, the opportunity to work with a global network of dedicated ecologists, and the encouragement offered by friends and colleagues motivated us to undertake this important task.
Please take a few minutes to inform yourself about EcoWB’s mission and scope of activity, and how you can get involved. The basic building blocks for the organization have been laid. Our Governing Board, Advisory and Fundraising Committees, and Volunteer Network are up and running. We have forged ties with other high-profile organizations such as the American Fisheries Society and Engineers without Borders. And, most importantly, we are already working on projects in Cambodia and Mexico that will enable us to focus our efforts and invest our resources where they will do the most good. Several other projects in various stages of concept and design are on the drawing board. With your help, the number of ecologists and worthy projects we are able to support will grow exponentially.
Please help us spread the word about Ecologists Without Borders. We love to work with dedicated, talented individuals. If you want to collaborate on a project, reach out to others, help coordinate our activities, raise funds and so on, please go to How to Get Involved. Alternatively, you can contact us directly at Tel. 1.360.915.4194 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our website will evolve over the next few months as EcoWB adds volunteers, staff, new projects, and infrastructure, so please check back regularly. Better yet, sign up as an EcoWB Member, and we will notify you of any major changes. We invite you to help EcoWB achieve its goal of protecting the environment, everywhere, one-ecologist-at-a-time!
