Our Mission: White Oak Conservation Center, Inc. works to conserve threatened species by partnering with organizations that engage local communities in the support of wildlife conservation and habitat protection.
White Oak Conservation Center, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2001 to conserve threatened species through the support of training, research, education, community outreach and protection. Thanks to the generous support of our donors, foundations and partner organizations WOCC has raised over $16M since its inception for wildlife conservation.
WOCC is committed to supporting the conservation of rare and vulnerable species in nature through its well established partnerships with global conservation organizations such as the Giraffe Conservation Foundation, International Rhino Foundation, the Okapi Conservation Project, the Wildlife Conservation Society and the Wildlife Conservation Network.
White Oak Conservation Center, Inc. is no longer affiliated with the conservation programs at White Oak Plantation which is now owned by White Oak Conservation Holdings, LLC. White Oak Conservation Center, Inc. raised funds to support the animal programs at White Oak Plantation from 2002 to 2012 and now focuses on efforts to conserve culturally and ecologically important flagship species through a holistic approach that engages communities and protects wildlife and habitat.
The board of directors and staff of WOCC, Inc. are committed to providing support to the people and organizations we have worked with for over 10 years that are making a significant difference in the survival of vulnerable species across the conservation spectrum. As an organization we will focus primarily on managing and supporting the Okapi Conservation Project in DR Congo and continue working with our proven partners to conserve some of the most threatened iconic representatives of our planet’s amazing biodiversity.
