The Great Plains Foundation takes a holistic view of conservation and all of the projects, whether wildlife, landscape or community focused seek to restore, reinvigorate, and protect wilderness areas. The following initiatives are focused on specific species conservation, but with a goal to preserve and protect the overarching ecosystems in which these species reside.
Great Plains Conservation has committed alongside industry partner andBeyond to undertake a relocation of rhinos on a magnitude never done before – to relocate no less than 100 rhino from South Africa to safe havens in Botswana.
Project Ranger began as an emergency intervention in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. In 2020, as travel and tourism were brought to a standstill, national parks, protected areas and lodges were left empty.
Stop a Poacher. Sponsor a Ranger. Save a Species.
Conservation areas need boots on the ground. Without these frontline rangers, poachers have it all their own way. But we often do not need armed antipoaching forces, what we need are eyes and ears.
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.
After 13 years, the National Geographic Big Cats Initiative is celebrating its success, understanding its experiments, and making a change to a fully managed, marketed and run NGO under the Great Plains Foundation umbrella.
Every two years Maasai men and women gather in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro for the Maasai Olympics. This unique conservation program is a sporting event featuring bouts of athletic endurance, skill, and strategy all with a clear goal in mind…the conservation of lions.
The goal of the Sapi Restoration Initiative is to restore this depleted landscape through a combination of strategic protections, a comprehensive conservation plan, species reintroduction, and conservation tourism.
