California Wildlife Needs YOU!

Bighorn sheep in Anza-Borrego State Park (Photo by Beth Pratt)I enjoy sharing my adventures in Yosemite and the other marvelous natural places that California has to offer. If you like reading this blog, would you consider making a donation to the National Wildlife Federation to help support my organization's work in California? As the new California Director for NWF, I am really excited about the programs and initiatives we are developing in the state that will help protect the wildlife I cherish.

So if you can make a small donation to NWF California, I promise to keep posting photos and updates in my spare time to share the special places and remarkable creatures of California with you.

You can donate at my NWF fundraising page on Crowdrise. My goal is to raise $3,000 by 12/31.

See campaign information below and some special gifts you can receive for donating!

THANK YOU! And I also thank you on behalf of the frogs, fairy shrimp, pika, bighorn sheep, desert tortoise and other creatures of California.

Remember when you tried to catch your first frog as a child, laughing as you scurried after the leaping creature in your backyard? Or have you witnessed the sheer delight your own children experience when they chase a frog hopping away?

Today, it’s not easy being green, and a third of all amphibian species are on the verge of extinction. That includes two of California’s beloved frogs, the mountain yellow-legged, and the red-legged frogs.

California’s frogs—and other creatures—need your help.

In the California of the future, will the cheerful chirping of the pika disappear from the mountains in Yosemite? Will the Chinook salmon no longer swim in California’s rivers? Will the bighorn sheep and the desert tortoise vanish from the Mojave desert?

Your donation will help support the National Wildlife Federation’s work in California, including important wildlife protection initiatives and vital research, and education and outreach programs to help engage California’s diverse population on wildlife and conservation issues.

As America’s largest conservation organization, the National Wildlife Federation works with more than 4 million members,  partners, and supporters across the country to inspire Americans to protect wildlife for our children’s future.
