Conservation Emergency Fund

One of the most important lessons gleaned from the COVID-19 pandemic is that unprecedented times and challenges call for fast, flexible and innovative responses.

This is especially true in conservation work when rapid responses can save the lives of wildlife and people and prevent the destruction of endangered landscapes. It is with this understanding that the Great Plains Foundation made the decision to establish the Conservation Emergency Fund. Donors to the Conservation Emergency Fund help give the Great Plains Foundation, under the guidance of Dereck and Beverly Joubert, the resources, discretion and flexibility to provide quick responses to urgent conservation situations as they arise and help to secure a bright future for Africa’s wild places.
