The Global Conservation Corps has committed itself to develop projects that aim to address the poaching crisis. The non-profit organization works to educate young people about the value of conservation as well as equip rangers as they risk their lives to protect wildlife.
None of GCC’s projects would be possible without the support of the donors and partners – the latest one being the Morgridge Family Foundation.
In October 2019, GCC had a special visit from the Morgridge Family Foundation (MFF). This was MMF’s first trip to South Africa. Their goal was to understand GCC’s needs, development goals, and areas requiring support.
Over the space of six days, MFF visited various GCC projects, most notably the Future Rangers schools, and the rangers of the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve. The group was able to visit GCC’s partners at the Southern African Wildlife College as well as participate in an exploratory trip into the Kruger National Park.
The Morgridge Family Foundation has since become one of GCC’s partners. The Foundation has been of great help with overhead funding, including the purchase of a vehicle for on-the-ground operations.
GCC is grateful for the new partnership and great friendship and looks forward to a long and exciting relationship together.
