Rare Species Conservatory Foundation
The Rare Species Conservatory Foundation (RSCF) is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization dedicated to preserving biodiversity through grass-roots conservation programs rooted in sound science. RSCF employs the "flagship species" concept to identify and conserve high-profile, priority species in order to leverage protection for the ecosystems they represent. Propagation and management of such flagship species, along with field-based research and habitat protection, are ultimately directed toward long-term biodiversity preservation at a regional level. RSCF provides consulting and technical services to governments and conservation/research organizations engaged in conservation initiatives, and forms educational, scientific, and economic partnerships to expedite habitat and species preservation projects.
