Foundation Thanks


PRBO thanks our foundation supporters who have made recent contributions.

We remain deeply grateful for significantly expanded support from the S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation for our Rangeland Watershed Initiative to enhance foothill watersheds of the Sacramento River Valley, and the Migratory Bird Conservation Partnership with PRBO, The Nature Conservancy, and Audubon California to increase the pace, scale, and effectiveness of migratory bird habitat conservation efforts in California.

We are especially thankful for a generous gift from the TomKat Foundation to continue our partnership with TomKat Ranch in achieving its vision of becoming fully sustainable, wildlife friendly, and energy independent while engaging young people and the community through ecological research and education programs.

The Kimball Foundation provided a generous grant to our conservation science intern program, helping us train a new generation of field biologists.

PRBO’s long-term ecological monitoring and protection of Farallon Island seabirds, marine mammals, and white sharks, in cooperation with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, received support for which we are grateful from the Giles W. and Elise G. Mead Foundation and the Hellman Family Foundation.

We are appreciative of the Mary A. Crocker Trust and the Lisa and Douglas Goldman Fund for supporting our efforts to guide tidal marsh restoration and management in San Francisco Bay in the context of sea-level rise and other climate change impacts.

The Resources Legacy Fund and the Morgan Family Foundation renewed funding for PRBO to increase the ecological benefits of forest and meadow conservation efforts in the Sierra Nevada.

The Biz and Livia Stone Foundation provided a generous grant for school students our Students and Teachers Restoring a Watershed (STRAW) Project.

These are among the many foundations supporting PRBO’s programs.
