She is currently editing the first volume in a projected series of regional field guides to the birds of Brazil, under the auspices of the Wildlife Conservation Society.

Ms. Sollins is deeply interested in conservation of habitats to protect particular species, especially in Ecuador, and she has been a steadfast supporter of Fundacíon Jocotoco for many years. She has previously supported various Audubon and Nature Conservancy efforts, and participated in a long and eventually successful struggle to protect Marshlands Conservancy (now designated as an IBA) in Rye, New York, from the effects of a proposed development on adjacent land. Ms. Sollins also co-founded a not-for-profit organization whose mission was to provide free counseling and guidance to cancer patients and their families in Westchester County, New York. She graduated with a B.A from Sarah Lawrence College and an M.A (Lit.) from Fordham University."
