"WCS's goal is to conserve the world's largest wild places in 15 priority regions, home to more than 50% of the world's biodiversity." - WCS.org
WCS was started and continued in New York. WCS has four zoos and one aquirium. Bronx Zoo, Queens Zoo, Central Park Zoo, and New York Aquirium.
At WCS it is ther mission to stand with animals and keep their habitat safe. Their goal is to conserve the world's largest wild places in 15 priority regions, home to more than 50% of the planet's biodiversity.
They do this by using science to fully understand the natural world. They also want to inspire others to support their cause.
"Since the early 1900s, WCS has supported governments and communities in creating or expanding 245 parks and protected areas around the world, making a significant contribution to the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity target to designate 17 percent of the land and 10 percent of the oceans as protected areas by 2020. Our ongoing work with governments and communities ensure they are able to manage their protected areas effectively and conserve the wildlife and wild places that matter to all of us." - WCS.org
They core beliefs are to discover, inspire and protect.
