Kat Taylor and TomKat Ranch
"Growing up in California, spending most of my time out-of-doors, I was raised in a nature ethic. I understand that we live within natural resource and ecological limits, and we have to tend to the planet that is so gracious to host us. That’s why at TomKat Ranch we partner with Point Blue to create a 'learning laboratory.' Here beef cattle graze on grasses and pastures only. At the same time, the soil ecosystem grows healthier. This is 'ecological ranching' where cattle are used to improve biodiversity above and below the ground. Point Blue's scientists and data help us understand what’s going on. I'm proud to be a supporting partner with them."
While there's no shortage of scary news in the conservation space, we remain hopeful.
Congratulations to all of our Bird-A-Thon participants and donors so far! Thanks to your efforts, $77,217 and counting have been raised so Point Blue scientists can keep pushing boundaries to make an even greater climate-smart conservation.
