Our Sponsors

We believe that science is an adventure - an adventure in exploration and discovery - and that science has the power to inspire the global community.  We also believe that collaboration is the key to most effectively advancing both science and education.  

 

We also believe, though, that all partnerships, regardless of the nature or content, should be both collaborative and mutually beneficial.  The BBPI is committed to providing attractive and flexible opportunities to our financial partners, and is eager to publicly thank them for their support.

With engaging educational programs, fascinating research, and thrilling field expeditions with nearly universal appeal, the BBPI provides plenty of excellent opportunities for partnership.  Whether you represent a multi-national corporation with a philanthropic foundation, or you're an individual who shares our passions and convictions, we'd love to partner with you to further our mutual interests.  Below are just some of the ways your organization can support the BBPI, and ways we would like to acknowledge your company's generous contributions in return.  Contact us today!
