The Rare Species Fund actively supports the African Association of Zoos and Aquaria (PAAZAB) in its efforts to improve African zoo collection management, captive animal husbandry, and public educational messages. On a Continent where millions of wildebeest make an annual migration of several hundred miles, covering a huge swath of two countries, accompanied by zebra and other plains game, as well as many rare and endangered predators, almost 99 per cent of all African youth will never see any of these animals in their natural habitat.

The Rare Species Fund (RSF) is a non-profit grassroots organization that provides financial support and practical training to in-situ wildlife conservation initiatives. This direct-to-end-user approach places RSF among the world’s most effective conservation agencies. The RSF contributes to those efforts that have shown themselves to be the most viable in real world conservation of wild species populations.

By putting essential money and equipment directly into the hands of people implementing the programs, RSF ensures the greatest value for every dollar spent. RSF also works closely with various state, federal and international agencies to help develop sound governmental policies pertaining to conserving and protecting the world’s wildlife. By assuring sustained funding for long-term research and conservation projects, RSF optimizes the prospects for preserving endangered species; for releasing excaptive animals into suitable, protected habitats; and for expanding awareness of the ties between humans and the natural world.

The Rare Species Fund (RSF) was established in 1982 to provide financial support to on-site wildlife conservation projects and wildlife educational programs around the globe. RSF derives its funding from The Institute for Greatly Endangered and Rare Species (T.I.G.E.R.S.), and from underwriting by philanthropic agencies.
