The conservation of the species and the ranchland we are blessed with is crucial. Here are the organizations we work with and some of our participation we have documented along our journey.
Supporting their mission --
"To support conservation research and education programs that strive to ensure the survival of giraffes and their ecosystems for future generations"
We're proud to be a member of Conservation Centers for Species Survival, a Source Population Alliance participant, and an accredited facility of the Zoological Association of America.
“[C2S2] and member institutions are uniquely positioned to secure populations of endangered species for assurance and reintroductions. Given continued threats to critical habitats, an assurance population secured today is many species best bet for long-term survival.” Learn more: conservationcenters.org
“With more than sixty accredited members, [ZAA] is the second largest trade association in the zoological sector; counting among its members some of the finest facilities in the United States. ZAA’s focus begins with superior animal husbandry. Conservation, Education and Research are also major pillars of [ZAA’s work].” Learn more: zaa.org
SPA “brings together experienced participants from conservation centers, private landowners, and zoological parks to maintain sustainable populations, facilitate breeding, create data to conserve priority species, and ultimately return species to their native habitat.” SPA is a program of C2S2. NBWR was an original member. Today, NBWR is still an active participant. Learn more: sourcepopulation.org
