Our esteemed director, Greg, has repeatedly encouraged us at IBO to strive to be a “world class” organization. I may be biased but am of the opinion that we’re very fortunate to employ a cast of very talented biologists and educators – of course including our all-star full-time employees but also extending to our hard-working volunteers and seasonal field assistants.  Does that count as World Class? Who am I to say?

What I can say is that our research and education work is having an increasingly global reach!

Just for fun, here are a few quick summaries to show just how far our activities are reaching.
