Our Values

Our values define us as a progressive organisation. One that is focused on results, believes in fairness and driven by innovative thinking.

Venture Capitalism

Like a venture capital firm for painted wolves, we seek out innovative ideas and provide seed funding for new projects, or bolster approaches known to work.


Collaboration is key. We work to bring conservation groups together for elevated impact.

Ideas not Institutions

We support the best ideas, whether they come from individuals, small organisations, or larger non-profits.


We believe all painted wolf populations are important, and invest in projects to recover painted wolves throughout their entire range.

Diversity and Inclusion

We aspire to play a role in shaping a new era of leadership in wildlife conservation – one that is more inclusive, diverse, and representative of the many groups associated with conservation.

Sound Governance

We are governed by a team of professionals, with a Board, a Granting Committee, and a team of technical advisors that provide sound conservation, philanthropy, and communications guidance.
