Some of the most critical concerns facing our planet today include global warming, the depletion of our natural resources and the dwindling wild animal population.2 percent of the charitable giving in 2008 for the preservation of the environment and protection of wild animals is down 5.5 percent from the previous year.
Earth Friends Conservation Fund is a charitable foundation committed to using its resources to support the work of more than 100 conservation and wildlife protection groups.Founded in 1994 by Rick Flory, we recognize the need for partnership among the concerns of business, wildlife interests, and of those who will inherit the quality of life we create on this earth. We support the efforts of our scientists, socially responsible businesses, and community to create a sustainable future. We also make significant grants to National Parks and National Wildlife Refuges - our natural treasures and our legacy to future generations.Earth Friends carries a message of hope, of our connectedness, of the dignity for all life forms, and of a great and urgent need. Together, we can make a world of difference.
