Working to save endangered wildlife.
WCN protects endangered wildlife by supporting conservationists within their partner network. They work towards the goal of ensuring wildlife and people co-exist and thrive.
Their partner network is a select cohort of on-the-ground conservationists who operate on the frontlines and have the nimbleness and know-how to make conservation work. They offer these conservationists ongoing, in-depth, multi-year support, providing the financial resources, tools, and services they need to effectively protect wildlife.

This project will support the continued protection of a relatively new colony of magellanic penguins in Peurto Madryn, a major tourist destination in Argentina. The project activities will include research, monitoring and community conservation outreach activities.
Our goal is a world where gorillas and other wildlife are healthy and their habitats are secure, and where they co-exist with healthy communities. UNESCO World Heritage Site, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda is home to 43% of the remaining 1,063 endangered mountain gorillas and is one of two remaining strongholds for the species. Surrounded by some of the poorest communities in Uganda, with very limited access to health and social services, the park and its wildlife are under serious threat from human activity. Sharing 98.4% DNA with humans, mountain gorillas are highly susceptible to human diseases. This project improves the health and hygiene of people living in proximity to gorillas to reduce the likelihood of spread of zoonotic diseases, such as COVID-19, common flu, tuberculosis, scabies, intestinal worms and dysentery.
