E. O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation

Carrboro, North Carolina - United States

The E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation was launched at a meeting organized in 2005 by Dr. Jay M. Short, who invited Edward O. Wilson, Neil Patterson, Charles J. Smith and other colleagues and friends to assist in forming a nonprofit organization that would use education, technology, and business strategies to further the preservation of biodiversity.

The mission of the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation is to promote worldwide understanding of the importance of biodiversity and of the preservation of our biological heritage. Among our projects is the development of educational materials in life science for high school and undergraduate students and the general public that will improve global understanding of the nature and diversity of all of life on Earth and why it must be conserved.
