Wildlife Conservation Society

The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) was founded in 1895 with the clear mission to save wildlife and wild places across the globe through science, conservation action, education, and inspiring people to value nature.

WCS’s commitment is to protect 25 percent of the world’s biodiversity, addressing four of the biggest issues facing wildlife and wild places: climate change; natural resource exploitation; the connection between wildlife health and human health; and the sustainable development of human livelihoods.
