Rare Species Conservatory Foundation Charity Profile
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 acquisition, 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.
One of the aspects that makes RSCF a very different kind of conservation organization is our "lean and mean," hands-on approach, whereby we minimize bureaucracy and administration. RSCF's small, focused staff conceive and execute its programs, doing everything from research in the field, to managing endangered species breeding programs, to writing scientific papers, to fundraising and all administrative functions. Many of our conservation programs are supported by contributions restricted for specific purposes, such as field research in a particular place, habitat acquisition, or endangered species husbandry. In such cases, 100% of incoming funds flow directly to those programs, with no part reserved for general operations or administration. Because RSCF's staff handles most tasks, administrative costs typically represent less than 3% of total annual revenues.
