The scale of the mission of ALL Species, to know all species in 25 years, requires diverse and significant philanthropic support. In its first two years of existence, several individuals and organizations made substantial contributions that were instrumental in building the base for key ALL initiatives. Other groups or individuals have supported specific activities through direct donations or have provided in-kind contributions. Without the generosity and vision of these supporters, it would have been impossible for ALL to sustain itself beyond the seminal concept.
