Wildlife Conservation Society

Wildlife Conservation Society (“WCS”) has a vast conservation program across Africa. Past grants from Empowers Africa have included funding for: human-lion conflict mitigation at Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda; elephant anti-poaching efforts in the Niassa National Reserve in Mozambique; and projects to repopulate giraffe species by addressing hunting and habitat loss. WCS works with local governments and other partners across the continent to find solutions to complex conservation problems.
