Wildlife Philanthropy | charity funding Wildlife, Ecology and Animals
On our how you can help page we mention that helping us gain visibility with philanthropic organizations. This is perhaps the most important task we can complete for delivering the technology to those who really need it.
One of the the uses for Air Solar Water is to provide wildlife watering stations in locations where species are declining due to extended drought and to help preserve bio-diversity in areas affected by global climate change.
Air Solar Water is unique because it can provide water in remote, dry sunny locations even during extended drought when other approaches fail. These times of stress are the times that cause greater damage for local wildlife. We can expect this problem to get worse as more areas are affected by desertification and global climate change.
I Found these links that include lists of philanthropy groups that focus on animals, wildlife or ecology. It seems like they could be a funding source for wildlife watering projects.
We also need wildlife biologists to plan, monitor and report on the impact for these projects.
