Wildlife conservation society (WCS) makes use of science to discover and understand nature.
The knowledge gathered is what helps them engage and also inspire communities, decision-makers, and millions of supporters to take action by collaborating with the WCS to protect the wildlife and habitats we all care about.
The scientists at WCS study what wildlife species require to thrive. With the knowledge gathered by scientists at the wildlife conservation society, they invest in abating threats to wildlife and their habitat within their most essential strongholds and the corridors that link them.
The WCS targets large, rare, wide-ranging species, most notably because they have intrinsic value and for the vital role they play in the ecosystem health.
By saving the wildlife, the WCS protects other biodiversities that takes shelter under their conservation canopy.

Saving Wild Places
Over the past 100 years, the WCS has established a long-term conservation presence in the remaining wild areas across Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Oceania.
They have also built strong and trusting partnerships and gained a depth of knowledge that secures effective conservation action.
The wildlife conservation society protects these last wild places because they are intact, biodiverse, most resilient to climate change, and bastions for large, iconic wildlife species.
The Wildlife conservation society (WCS) helps communities and governments to protect the natural environments that are critical to saving wild places and wildlife, securing a valuable flow of local livelihoods and ecosystems services based on the principles of social and environmental sustainability.
The WCS partners with indigenous and local people in achieving their goals for a more resilient and secure future, where wildlife stays a visible and culturally valued aspect of the wild habitats where they live.
Combating Wildlife Trafficking
Wildlife conservation society (WCS) uses its local presence and global influence to prevent wildlife poaching, hinder the trafficking of animals across transit routes, and reduce the demand for wildlife and their products.
Wildlife conservation society (WCS) uses its global health experts to investigate and fight against diseases that move between humans, domestic animals, and wildlife, and that represents a threat to the health of all.
Oceans and Fisheries
Wildlife conservation society (WCS) works with their local and government partners to offer protection to the earth’s oceans, inland waters, coastlines, and marine life, and even provide billions of people with both food and livelihood security.
WCS brings the private sector, governments, communities, and consumers together to develop policy options and scientific solutions that will be of benefit to nature and industry.
Wildlife conservation society (WCS) takes action to reduce threats to wildlife so that the population of species are stable or rising, to ensure that fishing and hunting are sustainable, and to resolve conflicts between people and wildlife.
Addressing Climate Change
Wildlife conservation society (WCS) apply their science to find out how best to reduce the impacts of climate change on wildlife, ecosystems, and people, increasing resilience and offering insurance against a fast-changing world.
The WCS engages in a wide range of conservation science and policy interventions to aid their conservation solutions.
Science helps WSC to discover and understand the natural world. They use the knowledge gathered to engage decision-makers and inspire communities, and millions of supporters to collaborate with them.
The above as some of the things the WSC does to promote wildlife conservation and save the planet. Do not hesitate to leave your questions or suggestions below.
