Thank you all for supporting Ecology Project International (EPI) as they work to improve and inspire science education and conservation efforts worldwide through field-based student-scientist partnerships. Your contributions supported someone like Mackenzie:
My name is Mackenzie, I am 18 and I have lived in Missoula, MT for as long as I can remember. I am about to graduate from Sentinel High School and I will be attending the University of Montana in the fall going after a biology major.
I think a big problem we face today is the enormous number of people on Earth. There are so many of us and we use so much energy every day. A big challenge will be how to get enough energy, food, water, and medicine to everyone without destroying our precious planet. I think that if we put our heads together we can find a way, but we will need a lot of ingenuity and teamwork.
EPI has affected me most by finally giving me a place where I can put all my passion for conservation to work. I have been able to do some pretty awesome things that have made me even more sure that this is where I want to spend my life. I am so happy that I have found a way to start making a difference both in my community and globally.
Thank you Jere, Emily, Mary, Joseph, Kari, and Julie for supporting EPI!
