Children of Conservation works with dozens of partners on the ground in Africa. We are lucky to have the benefit of talented administrative specialists at each sanctuary or organization we collaborate with. While they are employees of their home sanctuary, we consider them part of our team.
We are also lucky to have volunteers and other partners who make our programs possible. It really does take a village!
