For nearly 50 years, The Wetlands Institute has occupied a unique position as both educator and protector, doing impactful research and conservation, and engaging members of the community in the critical role that wetlands play for life on Earth. Our commitment is stronger today than ever in setting the standard for excellence in environmental science, conservation and education.
As we approach Thanksgiving and the holiday season, I ask you to consider including The Wetlands Institute in your year-end charitable giving. For almost a half century, the Institute has been generously supported by thousands of individuals, by competitive grants, and by businesses and foundations that value the important role environmental nonprofit organizations play in the life of our communities. We rely on the unrestricted annual donations of our supporters and friends for funding that is critical to sustain and advance the Institute’s powerful impact in the field.
In keeping with our life-enhancing mission, over the past several years The Wetlands Institute has developed a bold plan of rebirth and renewal to ensure that we continue to have relevant impact in the environmental arena.
- The Institute is taking the pulse of the marsh with leading-edge monitoring programs to understand the scale of the changes that are occurring and the impact they are having on sensitive species.
- Our environmental education programs are exposing thousands of students and individuals of all ages to otherwise inaccessible ecosystems, building connections between people and the natural world.
- We are working to engage communities to plan for future changes and to help them plan for resiliency in the face of natural changes that are affecting our marshes and coasts, and with them our communities.
With gratitude we look forward to your participation – through Wetlands visitation and your financial support – in helping the Institute to continue our mission to conserve wetlands and coastal ecosystems and the wildlife that depend on them. Thank you for your past support and for your consideration of a year-end contribution. Your gift – no matter the size – will help us to continue to work to safeguard the well-being of our fragile ecosystems, and reconnect people to the wonders of the natural world.
