and other gear to TBG

Looking to put your old gear to work? We can use all kinds of used equipment for our work, and we will make sure that your contribution is put to good use.

We and our collaborators and guides in Ecuador, Mexico, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Democratic Republic of Congo, and across the United States need camera, field, and computer gear to accomplish our goals in conservation ecology.

And you can get a tax-deduction for your contribution! Send us any of the following gear and let us know if you’d like a receipt for your donation.

Just contact us today with a general idea of what you are donating and please ship them to our partner Tempe Camera Repair who handles all our incoming camera donations at the following address:

Items We Can Use

Use, Give, Repair, Recycle

Our first goal for your pre-owned gear is to use it ourselves or get it to our collaborators around the world who need it.

While there’s some gear that is not practical for use in the field in this day and age, don’t worry! Whatever we cannot use will be sold to support our mission.
