Point Blue Conservation Science

Point Blue Conservation Science is a California-based, globally impactful 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that advances conservation of birds, other wildlife and ecosystems through science partnerships and outreach. Our highest priority is to reduce the impacts of habitat loss, climate change, and other environmental threats while promoting nature-based solutions for wildlife and people, on land and at sea. Our decades of data, carefully collected and analyzed by boots on the ground scientists, have contributed to the creation of the largest marine protected area on the planet, habitat restoration policy and implementation over thousands of acres throughout California, and ongoing ecological discovery that improves conservation action. We recognize that increasing racial, gender, cultural, and other diversity, equity, and inclusion factors at Point Blue and in our partnerships is essential for the success of our mission, vision, and strategy. We are actively engaging in a process to create lasting organizational change.

LandPaths mission is to foster a love of the land in Sonoma County. We engage more than 8,000 community members each year with our (3) core initiatives – Rooting Youth in Nature, Branching Out Conservation for Everyone, and Growing Community with Nature. These complimentary initiatives get youth from marginalized communities outside for recreation and science based nature exploration, connect families to the natural world through our Community Gardens and Vamos Afuera program, and engage volunteers in stewarding the land we manage to benefit the land while nourishing our volunteers.
