About

The Biodiversity Institute promotes conservation by supporting world-class research and public engagement in science. With your support, we can do the following.

  • Engage the public in the scientific process through community science and outreach, including the Rocky Mountain Amphibian Project and Moose Day.
  • Increase graduate student success by supporting cutting-edge biodiversity research.
  • Create novel approaches to K–12 biodiversity education.
  • Support programs and events, including Wyoming Naturalist Program, BioBlitz, bat walks, Stewarding Wyoming Landscapes through Hunting and Fishing, Salamander Saturday, Pollinator Day, Bee Jubilee, Science Cafés, and biodiversity-focused art exhibitions.

Passionate donors like you fund all Biodiversity Institute community science projects and outreach events. This year, achieving our goal of 75 donors will unlock an extra gift of $1,250 from our Biodiversity Institute Staff Challenge.

The impact of your gift is fundamental to the success of the Biodiversity Institute and to the faculty, students, and community members who benefit from the BI’s programs. Thank you!
