WCS uses science to discover and understand the natural world. This knowledge helps us engage and inspire decision-makers, communities, and millions of supporters to take action with us to protect the wildlife and wild places we all care about.

The goal of WCS's Community Partnerships Program is to reduce the impact of an expanding human footprint, changing climate, and water scarcity by building a broader and more diverse constituency that is actively engaged in and supportive of wildlife conservation.

We do this by understanding the root causes of issues
and connecting people to information, experts, and best practices
for minimizing the effects of an expanding footprint so they can
be more inspired and better informed to act on behalf of wildlife.
