The Projects

Condor Box

Andean Condor Species Survival Plan

The Andean Condor Species Survival Plan (SSP) works with zoos, conservation organizations, governmental agencies and corporations in the Americas. They reintroduce Andean condors to their native habitat and then monitor them to better understand areas to protect in Colombia and Venezuela. The SSP also conducts educational programs about the importance of the condor in its ecosystem.


Grassroots Wildlife Conservation

Grassroots Wildlife Conservation (GWC) works to conserve rare and threatened species right here in Massachusetts. From building vernal pools for spadefoot toads, to planting rare New England blazing star flowers, to raising hatchling Blanding’s turtles for reintroduction projects, GWC engages the people of Massachusetts to make measurable conservation gains locally.

Tapir1 Box

Proyecto Tapir Nicaragua

Proyecto Tapir Nicaragua seeks to protect tapirs and their habitat. Their work combines research through collaring tapirs and reintroductions with local and national tapir conservation, as well as education initiatives to ensure a viable future for Baird’s Tapirs in Nicaragua.


Snow Leopard Trust

The Snow Leopard Trust engages in education programs, a community-managed Livestock Insurance Program, and long-term ecological studies. The trust also helps local communities produce products, like handicrafts, as ways to earn income, that in turn support snow leopard conservation in China, India, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia and Pakistan. These five countries contain over 75% of the world’s population of wild snow leopards.
