The Importance of Private Funding

Have you ever wanted to directly contribute to the preservation of species and habitats? Do you have a thing for large cats? On this page you'll find practical and immediate ways to further Marcella's research in Virginia (bobcats), Belize (jaguar, puma, & ocelot), and in Tanzania (leopards), and Madagascar (fossa).

Marcella's research and field work require cameras and related gear, 35mm film and processing/printing, radio telemetry equipment, transportation by air and land, stipends or salaries for assistants and guides, bench fees for lab use, navigational and orienteering tools, and meals and lodging while in the field. And all of these items require funding.

You can help further Marcella's research with a contribution of any amount, either by check or credit card.
