Education: The Key to Survival
We sponsor education programs that increase awareness in both adult and youth audiences through the use of captive-bred ambassador animals. WCE and CF works with a network of leading conservation educators who have been delivering programs in the San Francisco Bay Area for well over 20 years. These programs have reached over 6 million children, sharing knowledge about the 36 species of wild cats. Due to chronic budget shortages, more and more schools do not have funds available to present conservation-oriented assemblies to their students. So, fewer and fewer children are aware of what is happening to the wildlife around the world. WCE and CF underwrites the costs of delivering these important educational programs.
Conservation: Ensuring Future Generations
We help fund organizations working in the field. Currently these include the Cheetah Conservation Fund, Snow Leopard Conservancy and others. We are actively involved in these organizations, ensuring that the money is used to fund effective conservation programs that work to save both the animals and their ecosystems. We will continue to add other worthwhile groups as funding allows.
