Adventure Scientists

- May 14, 2019

Adventure Scientists is a nonprofit organization based in Bozeman, MT that equips partners with data collected from the outdoors that are crucial to addressing environmental challenges. By leveraging the skills of the outdoor adventure community we are able to gather difficult-to-obtain data at any scale, in any environment. These partnerships have revealed the extent of microplastic pollution, led to discoveries that are improving agricultural efficiency, provided key information to guide climate change decision-making, and helped protect threatened wildlife habitat around the world.

Animal-Kind International raises much-needed funds for their partner Animal Rescue and Protection Organizations. Their partners in resource-poor countries work in their communities to help animals and to change attitudes and behaviors toward them. Animal-Kind International partners have the necessary experience, drive, skills and knowledge, but need financial support as it's difficult to raise money for animal rescue and protection in their countries.

Christo and Wilkinson Photography

Christo and Wilkinson Photography

Christo and Wilkinson Photography has been photographing and interviewing indigenous, place-based people throughout eastern and southern Africa for more than a decade. Wildlife became an integral part of their work as they came to appreciate how such people survived and thrived in a seemingly inhospitable environment. Expanding on years of documentary photography, still images naturally evolved to moving images to give voice to those who might not otherwise be heard.

Christo and Wilkinson Photography created the documentary film “Walking Thunder: Ode to the African Elephant,” which strives to be a poetic, intimate documentary focusing on a remarkable being, the elephant, and underscoring the essential role of “the other,” which the non-human plays in the mind and spiritual ecology of humankind. A child’s eyes and wonder allow us to reconnect with our own childhood awe and respect for the wild while helping to remind us of the legacy we will leave to future generations.

Earthfire Institute Wildlife Sanctuary and Retreat Center

Earthfire Institute’s mission is to serve as a small but powerful seed center, generating new perspectives on our relationship with nature to change the way that people see, and therefore treat, wildlife and nature. It strives to accomplish this by developing deep relationships and insights with the rescued animals of the Earthfire Institute Wildlife Sanctuary that they can then share with others through conversation and storytelling. Earthfire is at the forefront of integrating wild animals’ voices into our awareness, considerations and decisions, resulting in an expanded sense of community that truly includes all living beings, and opening the door to a richer and more sustainable future.
