Nonprofits I Support

I began creating artwork from hides, bones and other natural materials in 1998. From the beginning I put aside a portion of the proceeds to donate to nonprofit organizations (or occasionally for-profit, but generally good, organizations) that benefit wildlife and their habitats. I continued this practice as I built up my creative career, adding writing, even organization and other pursuits to my roster. And I encourage others to donate money and time, where possible, to these and other beneficial organizations. This is a list of current and past organizations I have supported. Please note that my list does not mean any of these organizations endorse me, and I do not necessarily agree with every single detail of their work.
