Support Us!


Discover Life in America appreciates your interest in exploring ways with us to meet your philanthropic goals.

Discover Life in America is committed to funding the world's top researchers to work in the park, putting on programs to educate the public, and keeping all the data we find in a system where everyone has access to it.   Access to reliable information about species and ecosystems allows decision–makers — governments, corporations, landowners, and conservation groups — to do their best to protect these resources even while pursuing their business goals.

We cannot do these things without your help.

There are many exciting ways you can support our ongoing mission of discovery and education.  Take a look around our store, sponsor your favorite species, or maybe donate something on our wish list.  If you have a company, maybe you'd like to become one of our corporate sponsors.  Or, have you ever considered what it would be like to name a new form of life?

As a corporate funder, private foundation grant-maker, or individual donor, your support enables Discover Life in America to fulfill its mission as a leader in providing scientific information, education and conservation expertise to help guide effective action.

All of those options are yours, and all of them would allow us to keep supporting scientists, researchers and educators here in the Smokies and many other diverse locations. Make sure to check out DLIA's Case for Support.

Note: before you give, you may want to examine our financial disclosure and donor's bill of rights.

DLIA is funded entirely by donations and grants. Your support today will help keep discovery alive.


Thank you for a great 2014 ATBI Conference

Thank you to all who participated in, and attended our annual ATBI Conference of March 2014. We believe it was very profitable: not only for the attendees in general, but for the gathering and collaboration of experts in the field of conservation biology. We were also delighted and enthused by the presence and presentations of our keynote speaker, bat conservationist and author, Dr. Merlin Tuttle.

Thank you Dr. Tuttle!
