Please help us complete a book aimed at inspiring and guiding thousands more wildlife conservation projects across North America 
For over 20 years, Keeping Track has taught people how to find and conserve the dwindling amount of safe wildlife habitat to be found across the continent. 

So far, our non-profit's training programs have led to the protection of more than 40,000 acres of land where animals can live, feed and reproduce.

Now we're on the verge of ramping up that concept– and multiplying its impact a thousand-fold or more. With a book uniquely written to show anyone how to protect habitats for more than 40 species.
29530226_15257195890_r.jpegSue Morse is close to completing what amounts to a "biodiversity conservation handbook" -- a species-by-species, grassroots guide to conserving critical habitats anywhere.

The book's author is Susan Morse, Keeping Track’s founder and science director.  Sue is a renowned naturalist, wildlife tracker, photographer, forester, public speaker and author. She’s put years of research into this book, much of it conducted during her spare time.

Princeton University Press caught wind of the project, quickly signed on to publish it, and -- recognizing its potential -- is now eager to get the manuscript.

A timely project
Meanwhile, of course, untold acres of important habitat are being lost to the bulldozer every day. High levels of government seem oblivious to or even complicit in the destruction. That's we've given Sue the go-ahead to devote all of time to her final research and writing so this vital book can be published ASAP.

That's where you come in. Besides the other hats she wears at Keeping Track, Sue has long been our primary source of revenue through the grant income and fees her workshops and presentations generate. Now, with the need for her to focus on research and writing, those revenues are gone – while our expenses continue. Including those being used to complete the book.

29530226_15257419110_r.jpegTips and techniques once available only through Sue's Keeping Track field workshops will be covered in the book for thousands more people to use in protecting habitat.

Put habitat conservation within every
community's reach
So please, make a donation right now to Keeping Track to keep us and the project afloat while Sue finishes the last part of the book. In the process, you'll be enabling us to inform and inspire far more would-be wildlife conservationists than ever before with our proven methods.

Together, we can kindle a grassroots revolution in habitat conservation.  So please, make your contribution right here.

Thank you in advance for your generosity. And for caring so much about wildlife, habitats and biodiversity. 

A final note
Sue is contributing all of her royalties from the book to Keeping Track. So your donation will not only advance grassroots conservation work across the continent. It will also help Keeping Track in all of its efforts to harness the power of citizen-science in protecting critical habitat.
