By Outreach and Communications Director Kristin Butler
Christine is a scientist and has contributed her skills as a volunteer in our Colonial Waterbird and Outreach Programs for several years. She said as a scientist she understands how important off-road vehicles are to organizations like SFBBO.
“After ten years as a field biologist, I understand the importance and value of a good field vehicle, which allows you to maximize the number of sites you can visit to gather as much data as possible in a season,” she said.
Basic things like a field truck can be a limiting factor in successful conservation research and adaptive management projects, she said.
“This is why we donated our Pathfinder to SFBBO, because we have hope for a future where Western Snowy Plovers and other species are thriving in the Bay Area, but reaching that goal requires action,” she said.
Thank you, Christine and Jonathan, for taking action to support SFBBO through your Pathfinder donation, and for all you do for birds and conservation!
If you have a vehicle or other item you'd like to donate to SFBBO, please contact Outreach and Communications Director Kristin Butler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
