Our Mission

kidwithblackracoonWe are committed to inspiring participation and awareness in the preservation of fragile ecosystems by educating youth and providing opportunities for personal direct action to save the diversity of life on Earth.

How We Do It

Since 1988 we have focused our efforts on protecting entire ecosystems and natural communities, not just individual species, to ensure a long term conservation strategy. We raise donations and awareness for these biologically diverse ecosystems through our Adoption Programs, Conservation Meters and Insect Discovery Lab. We partner with schools, universities, zoos, aquariums, botanical gardens, natural history museums, and science centers worldwide to protect wildlife in nature. We work in collaboration with businesses, and corporations to ensure the conservation of ecosystems for future generations.

SaveNature.org is a non-profit organization under section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations are tax-deductible. Our tax ID # is 94-3177095.
