Care for 45 Native Pollinator Plants

FUNDED February 8 2019 – Thank You!

62559Save the Sky Island’s fragile ecosystem today!

The Sky Islands in southern Arizona, southeastern New Mexico, and northern Sonora are a hotspot for wildlife diversity. Mountain islands meet a sea of grasslands and deserts, creating a habitat for a mosaic of native plants and animals.

In the Sky Islands, every drop of water is precious‐wildlife of all kinds depend on what little water there is to survive. Healthy riparian areas and wetlands are essential for aquatic species like frogs, and also for bats, birds, and insects. Unfortunately, drought, intense wildfires, and human activities have reduced the quality and amount of wildlife habitat drastically throughout the region, putting extra pressure on several plant and animal species trying to survive an already harsh climate.

Sky Island Alliance helps to bring balance back to wild places by sending scientists and volunteers to threatened and damaged riparian areas. They support native plant species by removing invasive species, and they install native plants that stabilize the soil and provide food and cover resources for wildlife and pollinators. Using natural materials like rocks and downed trees, the staff and corps of field‐hearty volunteers slow water down, helping it soak into the soil to nurture plants and reduce unnatural erosion.

At all of the restoration sites, the goal is to keep water on the landscape and to encourage a healthy balanced ecosystem. After native, pollinator friendly plants are installed, they are left with a water supply. Fences are set around new plants during this time to protect them from being nibbled on by deer or rabbits as they become established. Once healthy plants are established, the fences are removed and the plants become a natural part of the ecosystem. Water quality of the area is then tested from time to time to monitor how human activities may be impacting spring water and determine when a site is ready for reintroduction of sensitive plant and animal species.

You can help. Your generous clicks today will help us care for 45 native pollinator plants.

Transport 11 Women to and from Breast Cancer Treatment: Completed February 6, 2019

44,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women in Louisiana. While treatment is available, some women have trouble getting the care they need to stay alive. Many rural and urban cancer patients have very limited resources, and money for transportation is often beyond their budget ‐ even when that transportation is to a potentially life‐saving treatment appointment. This results in missed appointments, disease progression, and premature death. Please click today to help a woman with breast cancer access her treatment.
