Children of Conservation is dedicated to the conservation and protection of endangered species in third world countries through education, habitat preservation and wildlife sanctuary support. During our visits to these countries, we realized that lasting change requires a global approach. Children of Conservation projects are designed not only to help the animals, but also benefit the local people working tirelessly to protect these creatures, preserve their habitat, and end the devastating bushmeat trade.
“Children of Conservation,” was inspired by the story of Jonathan Kang (head keeper at the Limbe Wildlife Centre in Cameroon, Africa). Our primary project is a scholarship program that provides an education to the children of wildlife sanctuary workers that would otherwise be unavailable. In addition to helping cultivate conservation minded future leaders in the community, Children of Conservation provides a tangible benefit to the existing soldiers of conservation (their parents, the sanctuary workers).
A portion of our efforts are funded by the alcohol licensing/compliance classes co-founder Michele Stumpe developed and teaches through the Stumpe’s consulting firm, Evindi, Inc.
