The world is rapidly losing wildlife. 60% of global wildlife populations have vanished in the last 40 years, and 8,500 species are currently threatened with extinction. Africa is ground zero for poaching, with 3 rhinos and 100 elephants poached each day. With the price of rhino horn currently at $100,000 per kg, the battle against poaching is only intensifying, and anti-poaching rangers put their lives at risk everyday to protect these iconic species. To complicate the issue, local communities are often excluded from nature, and children are growing up with little to no connection with wildlife.
The Global Conservation Corps has committed itself to investing in both people and wildlife to tackle the poaching crisis. We empower the rangers, conservationists, and communities of South Africa to defend and benefit from their national heritage. We do this with two programs; ‘Our Rangers’, where we support the rangers who risk their lives every day to stand between a poacher and wildlife, buying us valuable time to save wildlife, and ‘Future Rangers’, where we empower the local youth to take action and stand up for what they love, while providing jobs long-term. What are we doing with our borrowed time? Our future is in the hands of the next generation. If people are educated and exposed to wildlife, they'll protect it.
