In 2014, Steve Dribble donated a 2006 BMW F650GS to ConserVentures to further our mission to promote exploration and to conserve our natural and cultural heritage.
In an effort to support field work for the endangered Mexican gray wolf, the bike ended up in the hands of Craig Miller, the Southwest representative for Defenders of Wildlife and a lifelong motorcycle enthusiast. Craig has been a tireless advocate for wildlife conservation in the Southwest for over 30 years. [For more details, please see his bio here.].
Craig’s work takes him deep into Arizona and New Mexico backcountry on rugged forest roads. The Wolf Bike allows him to move more quickly and efficiently, covering more ground to engage people in wolf conservation. "It’s helped me maintain a more consistent presence in the field, and the rides between ranches keep me energized for the difficult visits."
Stay tuned as we add accessories to upgrade the bike for Craig's field work, part of our Resources for Rangers program.
