Our mission is to reduce and reverse negative human and environmental impact on endangered wildlife by funding and supporting projects that create lasting change through education, advocacy, and repopulation worldwide.
We encourage educational initiatives, with a strong emphasis on environmental impact and endangered species protection.
We seek to influence public policy on endangered species by supporting organizations that engage in education and advocacy activities.
We support projects that directly combat human-caused harm to endangered wildlife, such as encroachment, exploitation, environmental damage and disease. These projects preserve and repopulate endangered species in their natural habitats.
