Adopt a Species

You are here

From the celebrated species—birds, bears, and butterflies—to the obscure—mosses, mussels, and minnows—NatureServe knows where they are found, why they are threatened, and what they need to survive. We believe this invaluable information should be freely available to the public, however, as a nonprofit NatureServe relies on donations from those who champion biodiversity to do so.

You can support the expert staff at NatureServe who maintain and publish this data by “adopting a species" below. For more information on the benefits of symbolically adopting a native plant or animal, please visit our Adopt-a-Species homepage. Thank you for helping us provide the best information possible! 

Enter in the amount you would like to donate, and the species available for adoption at that sponsorship level will appear below. Minimum values for each level: G5: $150 | G4: $500 | G3: $1,000 | G2: $2,500 | G1: $5,000
Please use numerical values only—no dollar signs, commas, or periods.
