About Us

Ecologists Without Borders seeks to improve the harmony between social and ecological systems.  We are concerned with the long-term health of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems and the human activities and natural processes that affect them. Our vision is to empower people to live sustainably by conveying ecological knowledge and assistance to areas of the world that face environmental challenges.  We believe that hunger, poverty, and strife can be alleviated and ecological health can be maintained through the wise use of natural resources, coupled with positive economic and social change.

We intend to promote sustainability by coordinating the efforts of Ecological Service Providers – professionals who possess expertise in one or more of the natural science disciplines or allied fields, and who are willing to donate their time and skills to improve the lives of others.  The EcoWB expert network comprises a multi-national cadre of biologists, foresters, ecologists, water resource engineers, hydrologists, planners, GIS professionals, and facilitators/ negotiators with experience in natural resource research and management. Our primary focus is on developing and transitional coun­tries, where natural resources are depleted and ecological processes disrupted to the point that human welfare is adversely affected.

The effectiveness of Ecologists Without Borders is dependent on our ability to work collaboratively and productively with host communities and other well-intentioned organizations and institutions.  It also depends on the willingness of people who are comparatively well off to support our endeavors.  If you are inclined to help us further the mission and goals of EcoWB, please consider donating your services and/or making a financial contribution.  To find out how you can help, please go here.
