How can you help?
Discover Life seeks help from people in all walks of life. Please contact us if you wish to contribute. For example, you can help as
  • photographers
    We hope to share high-quality images for a million species through the generosity of photographers around the world. If you wish to submit photographs, please email Amberlie McKee or call USA-706-542-6676. She will help you upload your images. You retain full ownership and copyright to them.

  • scientific contributors
    Researchers who wish to contribute information such as taxonomic authority lists, catalogs, specimen level databases for mapping, or identification guides should email John Pickering or call USA-706-542-1115.

  • donors
    Discover Life and the Institute for the Conservation of Tropical Environments are raising $500,000 to purchase land and endow local rangers and education specialists to protect the Greater Bamboo Lemur from extinction.

    This coming holiday season, in lieu of giving a material present to someone, make a gift in their name to these lemurs. Send a tax deductible contribution to our
    Campaign to save the critically endangered Greater Bamboo Lemur.

    Make your check payable to The Polistes Foundation and send it to
          Greater Bamboo Lemur Campaign
          The Polistes Foundation
          133 Washington Street
          Belmont, MA 02478

    So that we can recognize your contribution in somebody's name, please include their name in the bottom left corner of your check.

    And, tell your family and friends to do the same for you.

    Happy holidays to both the lemurs and you.
