Especially in these belt tightening times, I look very closely at the charitable organizations that I support.
I want an organization that sticks closely to a mission I endorse, uses most of their money for that mission, and is supported by the local communities in which they work.
AlTo is such an organization. They use their funds to save endangered wildlife and fragile habitat in one of the most diverse and important environments in the world, and they do so with the support of the local people living there.
I continue to be impressed by this small but amazing organization.

Over the course of a few decades of traveling the world, sometimes for recreation, sometimes for the hard slog of conservation, I’ve worked with professional conservationists from every continent, ranging from leaders of the largest conservation organizations to folks trying to make a difference one community at a time.
We need all kinds of people and all kinds of organizations to undertake effective conservation, but I think we particularly need grass-roots, clearly focused efforts like those of AlTo.
My wife and I support many fine conservation groups but none can beat AlTo for making us feel like our modest contributions are efficiently and effectively spent.
