The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), established in 1895 as the New York Zoological Society, is a US-based non-profit conservation organization that saves wildlife and wild places worldwide through science, conservation action, education, and inspiring people to value nature. With long-term commitments in over 60 countries, WCS applies its biological knowledge, cultural understanding and partnerships to ensure that wild places and wildlife thrive alongside local communities.

World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF)

WWF is one of the world’s largest independent conservation organisations, active in nearly 100 countries. Our supporters – more than five million of them – are helping us restore nature and tackle some of the main causes of nature’s decline, particularly the food system and climate change. We want a world with thriving habitats and species, and we want to change hearts and minds so it becomes unacceptable to overuse our planet’s resources.

A dedicated team

Trillion Trees leverages the expertise of three of the world’s largest conservation organisations in fighting deforestation and restoring forests. 
Through tailored support from an agile team, we connect funders with ventures capable of turning the world’s unfulfilled forest pledges into reality.
