WRS is proud to contribute to the protection of threatened species in their native habitats by funding local and regional conservation and research projects. We are keen to support: (a) Projects that have a direct and positive impact on the survival of a threatened species in the wild; (b) Research that can help develop better tools and strategies for the management of captive wild animal populations; (c) Studies that will benefit conservation strategy planning for species in their native habitats; and (d) Efforts that encourage and foster sustainable and ethical behaviours towards animals and nature through engaging and innovative conservation out-reach programs.
