BCI often has special needs ranging from assistance with funding conservation and education projects, to enabling staff attendance at conferences and workshops, and purchasing office equipment. Your help can make a big difference. For more information, or to make a donation, please call Cindy Lind at BCI, 512-327-9721.

Assistance to Conservationists
BCI annually provides honorary memberships to worthy conservationists in other countries. Their participation in saving bats is vital to progress, yet they often cannot afford to pay for membership. Your help will keep them informed. We will tell you who you have assisted and acknowledge your gift to the recipient(s) (28 memberships are needed at $30 each or a total of $840).

Kodak Ektagraphic Audio Viewer/Projector, Model 270
This important piece of equipment is needed to support BCI’s public education efforts at exhibits, conferences, and eco-fairs ($800).

A 386 IBM-compatible computer is needed for the BCI library. Dr. John Bowles, who retired after teaching biology at Central College in Pella, Iowa, for the past 24 years, now volunteers regularly at BCI. This computer would greatly assist his work.

As BCI grows, so do the demands on our two office printers. An HP Laserjet 4 printer would enable us to support cost-saving desktop publishing efforts and additional staff ($2,100).

BCI appreciates the following members for sponsoring foreign conservationist memberships: Gera Corte, Kapaa, HI; Bonnie Hurwitz, Ellicott City, MD; Robert W. Keyes, Medina, OH; Laurie Taylor Mitchell, San Antonio, TX; Michael Rex, Albuquerque, NM, and Arnie Schildhaus, Santa Barbara, CA.
