2020 Wildlife Conservation Virtual Spring Expo

2153 people attended
Wildlife Conservation Network’s mission is to protect endangered wildlife by supporting conservationists who ensure wildlife and people coexist and thrive. By supporting our 17 Conservation Partners, countless organizations in our Extended Network, and our Crisis and Recovery Fund grantees, we are able to save over 125 wildlife species in 84 countries around the world.

Twice each year, our Wildlife Conservation Expo provides the opportunity to connect conservationists with supporters, like you, to learn about their projects and hear their inspiring stories. 

We are delighted to bring you our first Virtual Expo, and hope that this will bring even more wildlife lovers from across the world to work towards a healthy planet for people and wildlife alike.
