About Wildlife Conservation Network
Mission: WCN protects endangered species and preserves their natural habitats by supporting entrepreneurial conservationists who pursue innovative strategies for people and wildlife to coexist and thrive.
The Wildlife Conservation Network (WCN) finds strategic conservationists with great ideas and invests in them technically and financially, just like a venture capital firm. In order to succeed, these wildlife conservationists need funding to run their programs and assistance to build their organizations and ensure their efforts are effective and able to grow. WCN partners with leading independent wildlife conservationists, providing them with an array of services and training in areas such as marketing, accounting, and strategic planning. WCN also creates connections to donors who can make these conservationists’ work possible. Though WCN started with a small handful of conservation partners in 2002, it has now grown to have seventeen partners around the world—from the forests of South America to the African savannah—all working to save iconic endangered species like lions, cheetahs, penguins, and elephants. WCN has built a powerful global network of conservationists, donors, wildlife lovers, and experts who band together with a common goal of saving endangered wild animals.
