Supporting PRBO's Work on Large Issues—for Today's Smallest People

Securing Our Future

Photo by Peter Liedtke
At PRBO, we are concerned with the largest ecological questions of our time. Among them: climate and land use change, conserving healthy ecosystems and the benefits they provide humanity, and obtaining the greatest outcomes from every conservation dollar invested.

But that's not all. We are also concerned with some of the very smallest things. Our efforts are ultimately for the benefit of our children and grandchildren. Will they experience the joy of seeing their first Wilson's Warbler or Tufted Puffin?

At the end of this century, what will be the status of salmon and other fish in the sea, and of songbirds in the forests? What do we need to know now in order to make the best decisions for the future? And how can you help PRBO meet this challenge?

Members of the Tern Society provide invaluable support for our mission. By including PRBO Conservation Science in their estate plans, they ensure the continued success of PRBO's long-term science projects, which are guiding conservation decisions that affect us all, on land and at sea.

More and more PRBO members are including PRBO in their estate plans. They understand the importance of planned gifts in securing our future! Will you join them?

If you're ready to secure the future for the next generation, join the Tern Society today! For information and confidential advice, please contact Nancy Gamble at 707-781-2554 or

To thank you for your interest in the Tern Society, we would like to offer you (and your children or grandchildren) a copy of the newest PRBO Pocket Guide to Beach Birds of California.
