The Marian and Dale Zimmerman Wildlife Conservation Endowment
Since then they have traveled the world together, seeking new flora and fauna on all the continents, their interests and curiosity always leading them to experience more of what the natural world had to offer.
From the beginning, she was an active participant in Dale's birding and research projects, here and abroad. Marian and Dale both carried on the tradition their parents had started – encouraging and sharing interests in the natural world.With ever-increasing threats to wildlife and natural habitats, plus a growing need for nature education and research, Dale wants to ensure availability of resources for promoting greater appreciation of, and research on, native plants and animals. To this end, and to honor Marian's memory, he has created the Marian and Dale Zimmerman Wildlife Conservation Endowment to support appropriate studies and conservation in the American Southwest, particularly New Mexico. The Endowment has been established through Audubon New Mexico, and it is Dale's hope that others will make contributions.
