Our Supporters

About Us > Our Supporters

We want to say thank you to those organisations who allow us to carry out our important work.

Our partners and funders assist us through financial contributions and the provision of goods, services, and expertise. Their support frees up funds and other resources which can be directed towards conservation. It also provides seed funding for new projects including ground-breaking research into the issues affecting iconic and endangered wildlife. Their contributions build our capacity and we deeply value their involvement.

If you are interested in contributing to the work of the Conservation Ecology Centre, you can find more information here, or please feel free to contact our CEO Lizzie Corke directly via email
