All the great activities with Wildlife Enthusiasts are free, but the Wild Equity Institute (the non-profit organization that leads the hikes) needs your support so they can continue their great work and offer more outings. WEI needs us to join the movement to build a healthy and sustainable global community for people and the plants and animals that accompany us on Earth. http://wildequity.org/donate
Below is a letter from Wild Equity's Executive Director, Brent Plater, discussing WEI's 2012 accomplishments and 2013 goals.
And if you haven't seen them yet, WEI has super cool "I Bird SF" t-shirts now. http://wildequity.org/entries/3279 Perfect for all the bird nerds you know.
I can wait to get a picture of a flock of Wildlife Enthusiasts in their "I Bird SF" t-shirts !!!
The Wild Equity Institute believes we can achieve extraordinary environmental victories while building a larger, more resilient environmental movement. We do this by uniting grassroots conservation and environmental justice groups in campaigns that build a more equitable world for people and the plants and animals that accompany us on Earth.
But we can’t do it alone: and that’s why we’re asking you to become a Wild Equity Institute member today.
Our work focuses on preventing other species from going extinct and ensuring that no community is burdened with a disproportionate share of environmentally harmful activities.
We aren’t done yet! In 2013, we will work to save San Francisco’s Natural Areas Program so it can continue stewarding our local plants and wildlife; transform Sharp Park Golf Course into a new national park everyone can enjoy; and save the Lange’s Metalmark Butterfly and empower local communities to end pollution from power plants that destroy the species’ habitat.
In each of these efforts, we build capacity for our movement by engaging new allies and building the power we need to tackle our most pressing environmental problems.
When you donate to the Wild Equity Institute you are helping to achieve measurable environmental gains on the ground, but more importantly, you are helping the movement to grow so that the scale of our efforts can match the size of the threats we face.
Movements are defined by the inspiration, the passion, the commitment of the people these organizations serve. This is why we need you to demonstrate your commitment by becoming a Wild Equity member today.
Imagine the world we will build together.
