Imagine one of your grandchildren asking, "What is a Purple Martin?"
It is a fact that Purple Martins are in decline. With your help, the PMCA is working diligently to raise awareness about Purple Martins, track their migratory patterns through research efforts, and serve as the leader for developing quality habitat for martins.
The fact is, so many of you have already given so much to Purple Martins by being landlords and ambassadors for Purple Martins. Many folks have asked what else can I do to help preserve this wonderful species. Other than being a landlord, the most effective way you can contribute to the future of Purple Martins is through planned giving, also known as granting a legacy or making a bequest.
Bequests are a very important legacy. Please consider putting the PMCA in your will!
As Purple Martin supporters, you will join others who know you are doing the right thing by nurturing the future of the Purple Martin Conservation Association with your contribution.
