Where we work

Grasslands are the unheralded counterparts of the rainforest. Comprising over 250 million hectares, they are home to countless plants and animals, sustain fisheries, and provide water to millions of people.

Yet they are highly threatened.

NGC is dedicated to promoting grassland conservation by empowering local people and launching careers in conservation.

Our 100% model

Our dedicated board members volunteer their time and donate all administrative costs, so every dollar you give goes directly toward conservation.
