The Turner Endangered Species Fund (TESF)

Date:Oct 10, 2016

The Turner Endangered Species Fund (TESF), headed by Mike Phillips, works to protect species under federal and state endangered species laws on the Turner’s two million acres of private lands. Currently TESF is working to rebuild populations of Black-footed Ferrets, Bolson Tortoises, Northern Rocky Mountain Gray Wolves, and many more species to their original habitats. Partnering with the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation on the Half-Earth Project, TESF is building a global alliance of private landowners that will work to save vanishing species by initiating self-directed imperiled species conservation projects on their property.
