Let’s face it, our National Parks, wild lands and wildlife are in danger
You can read articles on this site about the $11.6 Bn backlog in funding of maintenance projects at our National Parks. We don’t know how bad it is for other protected lands and wildlife. The good news is, we believe there will be progress in Congress and the states to start clearing this backlog soon, possibly as soon as this year.
“Organizations charged with executing the backlog of project work could be overwhelmed”
My story is no different than most personal accounts of people who were born in the 1950s and lived through the sock-hop rock-n-roll Sixties, the tie-dyed Seventies, the Cold War Eighties, the internet-connected Nineties, the Great Recession of the 2000s, and now the Age of Enlightenment 2010s. I have sleep-walked through several of those decades, experienced the highs and lows of social interaction, found a successful trade that I could turn into a career, and then, finally, “Thank God!” I found something that I really enjoy doing. For me, it was photography, and specifically, digital photography that unleashed my creative desires, awakened me at night with new ideas, and yes, photography gave me a reason to experience the most wonderful places on planet Earth. Oh, just one more thing…I found love, too, but that’s a story for another day.
“Thank God! I found something that I really enjoy doing!”
We are excited that you are here! We can’t wait to get to know you better. Please excuse our dust, as we bring up this site
The Conservancy Project is currently a research project with the ultimate aim of creating a brand new 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that will serve the interests of non-government organizations (NGO) that fund, oversee, or execute conservation project work across the United States. Larry Rogers currently chairs the study group, with help from three other professional engineers/designers who share a passion for the wildest places in America and the flora and fauna that call those places home.
The Conservancy Project is actively seeking volunteers with certain unique skills applicable to conservation work, philanthropy and fundraising, project and program management, wildlife biology, and related fields. If you have an interest in our mission and the critical skills we need, please visit our Contact Page (coming soon) to request an application package.
