You might have heard of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation as a sponsor for NPR or PBS shows about nature or environmental issues. They have awarded a grant to The Keystone Center to conduct a “listening project” that is intended to gather answers to the following question:

“What are the major challenges to biodiversity conservation over the next 5 to 10 years and beyond and what might be the most significant opportunities for philanthropic impact?”

It has the official title: “A National Conversation and Survey on Philanthropic Investment Opportunities for Biodiversity and Wildlife Habitat Conservation.”

Put in your 10 cents: Visit the Keystone website to participate in the survey and to tell the Foundation how you’d like them to invest/spend their money.

Note that the survey has quite a few open-answer questions, so allot some time to this, if you want to participate. The survey is only open until April, so time is running out!
