The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) is a global organization founded in 1895, dedicated to the conservation of wildlife and wild places worldwide. Our work over more than a hundred years has contributed to generate relevant scientific knowledge on wildlife and to protect species of ecological importance and in vulnerable situation, promoting the creation and management of protected areas around the world.
With a commitment to protect 25 percent of the world’s biodiversity, we carry out over 500 conservation projects in more than 60 countries from Latin America, Africa, Asia and North America, taking out scientific research in the field and local professional training.
