Point Blue Icon

Point Blue's 160 scientists develop nature-based solutions to climate change, habitat loss, and other environmental threats to benefit wildlife and people.

Why Rebecca Patton and her husband, Tom Goodrich, decided to support Point Blue

“We put Point Blue in our estate plans because we believe the unique role it plays in conservation is going to be important for the very long term,” Rebecca says. She and Tom were especially inspired by Point Blue’s climate-smart restoration programs and partnerships on working lands. This means a lot coming from a former global strategist at The Nature Conservancy and a prominent financial investor.
