Caring for Conservation
Nature and Species Conservation
“Preserving biodiversity is one of the most important tasks of our time. With C4C, we are lending a hand to those projects that have set themselves this task as their goal. Our work in favour of sustainable species protection is guided by the motto: research, education and protection”Dr. Michael Riffel, Founder and Director C4C
Caring for Conservation (C4C) advises and supports NGOs around the world whose mission is the sustainable conservation of species and landscapes and the empowerment of local communities. Additionally, the organisation also runs several initiatives around nature- and species conservation itself. Currently, these are limited to Zambia.
C4C believes that successful and sustainable species and habitat conservation is based on the triad of research, local development work and the protection of natural landscapes.
For the benefit of high quality work and collaborative knowledge exchange, C4C maintains close networks with experts from the fields of nature conservation and ecology and also relies on cooperations with the local commuities.
Conservation of species
We protect these species
Intact biodiversity is the basis of life for all of us. In order to maintain functioning ecosystems, the protection of habitats and species is thus essential. Here we introduce you to the species that are being researched and protected within the framework of the projects we support.
The majority of African vulture species are experiencing dramatic declines. C4C supports projects that aim to sustainably research and protect populations of vultures through tagging, monitoring and targeted conservation measures.
Giraffe numbers have declined dramatically all over Africa in recent years. C4C supports the work of projects that are dedicated to measuring populations, conducting genetic assessments, investigating social structures and developing concrete conservation measures.
In order to ensure an overview of population developments in wildlife areas and to identify the need for action in time, C4C supports projects to monitor leopard populations.
