SCF is blessed with the loyal and generous support of a growing number of people and institutions keen to share their skills, commitment, influence and resources for the conservation of Sahelian and Saharan wildlife.
A crucial engagement for nature
Like any other conservation organization, the support of the numerous donors and partners are a crucial prerequisite to achieving lasting conservation results. Also, SCF could simply not survive without the generous support it receives for salaries, operating costs, communications, project development, administration and duty travel. Equally. the achievement of our ambitious conservation goals would be impossible without the support of host-country governments technical partners.
Through its field projects, SCF and its partners act directly to stem the decline of threatened species and to address the root causes of species loss. For this we are particularly grateful for the support we receive to achieve this.
SCF is extremely grateful to the partners below for their loyal and generous support over many years.
