Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably seen our Indeigogo campaign for the 1 of 750. We are trying to raise $10,000 to help the last 750 Greenback cutthroat trout left in the wild. As of this writing there are less than 20 days to donate. Unfortunately, we still have a long ways to go. The good news is it doesn’t take much to help. Even a donation of $10 can go along way to help us reach our goal. We need 569 people to donate $10. Sounds like a lot. But we have almost twice that many facebook fans. This post will probably be seen by thousands of people through our network outreach.
So I’m asking can you spare $10 to make a difference? You’re single donation may not seem like much but it can add up quick.
Thank you for your support.
We’ve been working diligently behind the scenes to develop a series of projects to plug this money towards. I finally have a preliminary update to share with you, so that you know you’re money will be going to a worthwhile cause. In 2014 we will be working with Colorado Parks and Wildlife on the first re-introduction of Bear Creek Greenback cutthroats into the S. Platte Basin. This is going to be a historic project and we are thrilled to be a part of it. Some of the funds may go to some habitat augmentation associated with this project. We’re still working out the details with Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
Secondly we will be assisting in the funding for fish barrier projects and reclamation that will be the first effort to create a robust, self-sustaining meta-population of the Bear Creek strain in the S. Platte basin. This is a huge multi-year project and the Greenbacks are going to play a major role in making this happen. Right now we are engaging in a series of grant proposals to try to capture additional funding for the projects.
Your $10 (or more) will go directly to funding either or both of these awesome projects. But we really need you to step up and help these fish.
