GCC has committed itself to creating change in two main areas – people (Future Rangers Program) and wildlife (Zululand Rhino Orphanage).
The Global Conservation Corps (GCC) is a US – based non-profit 501(c)3 organization. GCC was founded on the belief that conservation belongs to all of us. People have been solely responsible for causing massive destruction of our global fauna and flora. However, at GCC, we believe that people are also the solution when it comes to turning the tide on wildlife decline and degradation.
GCC’s flagship project was the creation and production of RHINO MAN the Movie. RHINO MAN serves to bring international recognition and global awareness to the rhino poaching crisis in South Africa but more importantly highlights the brave individuals who risk their lives every day to keep Africa’s iconic species safe. There are enough doom and gloom out there concerning the global decline of our planets precious species, so we have specifically focused on the hopeful stories of a select few individuals, who provide light and hope in a very dire situation.
In 2015, GCC was blessed to have Friendly Human (an Atlanta – based video production company) get behind the RHINO MAN the Movie and sponsor almost the entire project. Our partnership has seen our film throughout South Africa and beyond, on 4 separate trips to highlight various people and organizations including:
Through the creation of RHINO MAN, we became even more aware that any type of solution involves working with both people and wildlife. There are so many incredible people, organizations, and institutions that need our support, but we have learned that by channeling our efforts towards a select few areas, we can make a positive and effective difference. Our 2 main partners include the Timbavati Foundation and the Zululand Rhino Orphanage.
