Vital Signs wishes to highlight and thank our generous financial supporters listed below. Without their faith and trust in us, and the gifts they have made, none of this work would be possible. These individuals and organizations have given a gift of education during a time of global uncertainly to help us collectively address the complex problem of invasive species.

Like no other program, Vital Signs creates a collaborative foundation for students, scientists and resource managers to respond rapidly to new environmental threats to Maine while providing essential experience to the next generation of its citizen scientists.
