Our mission is to create a global initiative in conservation for exotic and endangered species by working from all corners of the world to promote education and awareness for adults and children in the interactive world, the classroom, and on the ground. We will promote conservation efforts in the regions most effected by poaching, environmental degradation, human-wildlife conflict, illegal trade in endangered species, and can hunting of exotics. We will work with all governmental agencies around the world to improve laws, or in some cases help to create laws, to protect and provide a better standard of care for exotics and endangered species held in captivity.
One World Conservation is a registered non-profit corporation in the State of Texas. In July 2014, we achieved 501(c)(3) status with the US Government, and we are looking forward to gaining our full NGO status in Kenya, Africa. Once this is achieved, we will then file for 501(c)(4) status and open under our corporate umbrella, the "Tusker Foundation." This will give us official status in the United States to lobby for change in the world of exotic and endangered species. It is our hope to achieve real change and reform in the standard of care and protection of these species, not currently afforded them under the Animal Welfare Act, which is limited in scope.
