In 2007, Terralingua was also the recipient of the extraordinary generosity of the late Dr. Aldon N. Roat, a devoted supporter who made us the sole beneficiaries of his estate. We are forever indebted to him for this exceptional gift.

Over the years, various institutions and organizations with which Terralingua has collaborated have supported us by means of contracts, travel funds, or other monetary contributions. They include:

  • American Museum of Natural History (AMNH)
  • International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN)
  • United Nations Education, Science and Culture Organization (UNESCO)
  • United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)
  • World Conservation Monitoring Centre (WCMC)
  • Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF)

Many individuals have supported Terralingua with their generous donations. While the list is too long to include here, we are very grateful to all of them.

Various individuals and institutions have offered equally valuable in-kind contributions — from volunteering to travel and logistic support, and much more. These are also too numerous to mention here. We are grateful to them all as well.

Please consider donating to Terralingua to support our work. And if you’re interested in volunteering, please contact us.
