Conservation work requires both human and financial resources. Over the years, all of our projects were funded by grants from international agencies. But we were also recipients of subsidies and gifts from local companies.
Partnership with other conservation organizations is another aspect of environmental work because of the opportunities for networking, knowledge sharing and capacity-building. At the Nature Foundation we are proud to be linked to our local sister environmental organizations as well as be associated with international conservation organizations. The Nature Foundation is grateful for the support from the private and government sector and many funding organizations of past and existing projects.
