Giving Tuesday is the international day of giving on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. It signifies the beginning of the charitable season as people focus on the holidays and how they can give back to their communities. This year, Giving Tuesday falls on December 3.
Get into the spirit of the season by supporting MassWildlife's Natural Heritage and Endangered Species Program on Giving Tuesday and throughout the year! The Program works to conserve species protected by the Massachusetts Endangered Species Act. This happens through field surveys and research, regulations, habitat management, land protection, and education. The entire Program’s work is funded by grants and donations from supporters like you. Show your support by donating or reporting rare species.
Donate for conservation
All money donated to MassWildlife's Natural Heritage and Endangered Species Program goes towards conserving the rare animals and plants that call Massachusetts home. Your donation goes toward equipment and services needed to give these species a fighting chance.
There are a few ways you can donate:
- Online with a credit card or electronic check*
- Through your MassFishHunt account
- By check made payable to "Comm. of MA—NHESP" and mailed to:
1 Rabbit Hill Road
Westborough, MA 01581
*You will be redirected to our payment portal with nCourt, LLC.
Report rare species
If you have information on the location of a rare species or vernal pool and would like to help NHESP keep its database current, submit your observations through Vernal Pool and Rare Species (VPRS) Information System.
Thank you for your support
Without your support, we would not be able to continue our conservation work for the animals and plants—like the bald eagle, northern red-bellied cooter, and showy lady’s-slipper orchid—that need our help. You can learn more about our work here: mass.gov/nhesp.
