On January 19, Seattle Audubon experienced a break-in where (in addition to
several laptops and a projector) 13 pairs of Vortex Crossfire 8x42
binoculars were stolen from one of our education kits. If you see any
binoculars of this type for sale from a private seller in the coming weeks,
you may want to inquire about when/where they purchased the binoculars and
be suspicious of anyone not giving a straight answer. They were all marked
“Seattle Audubon” with silver marker, but this could easily be washed off.
Quality binoculars are obviously important educational tools for our
programs and will need to be replaced. We are gratefully accepting
donations for this unexpected expense.
