Our Mission: Wildlife Conservation Global works to conserve threatened species by supporting field based projects that engage local communities in the support of wildlife conservation and habitat protection.
Wildlife Conservation Global is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2001 to conserve threatened species in nature. Originally incorporated as White Oak Conservation Center, Inc. to raise funds to support field conservation projects associated with the animal programs at White Oak, the foundation transitioned to become totally autonomous in 2012. We now focus exclusively on efforts to conserve culturally and ecologically important species through a holistic approach that engages communities in the preservation of wildlife and habitat.
The primary focus of Wildlife Conservation Global continues to be managing and fundraising for the Okapi Conservation Project in DR Congo which works to safeguard the Okapi Wildlife Reserve, one of most bio diverse sites in all of Africa and home to the largest populations of forest elephants, okapi and chimpanzees in DR Congo.
The board of directors and staff of Wildlife Conservation Global are committed to providing support to people and organizations that are making a significant difference in the survival of vulnerable species in nature. As an organization we will continue working with our proven partners to conserve some of the most threatened iconic representatives of our planet’s amazing biodiversity.
