Who We Are
The Rare Species Fund (RSF) is a grassroots organization that provides financial support and practical training to in-situ wildlife conservation initiatives. This direct-to-end-user approach places RSF among the world’s most effective conservation agencies. The RSF contributes to those efforts that have shown themselves to be the most viable in real-world conservation of wildlife species populations.
By putting essential money and equipment directly into the hands of people implementing the programs, RSF ensures the greatest value for every dollar spent.
RSF also works closely with carious state, federal, and international agencies to help develop sound governmental policies pertaining to conserving and protecting the world’s wildlife. By assuring sustained funding for long-term research and conservation projects, RSF optimizes the prospects for preserving endangered species; for releasing captive animals into suitable, protected habitats; and for expanding awareness of the ties between humans and the natural world.
