What We Do
Global Conservation Assistance (GCA) is a new and innovative organization of social and environmental entrepreneurs dedicated to sustaining our natural environments through poverty reduction. Our mission is to build networks and assist communities, government and businesses with projects that integrate poverty reduction and ecosystem protection.
We are driven by the scientific information that clearly shows the changes in our economic and ecological behavior needed to sustain life on earth, and a moral commitment to culture and nature that forges a bond between this and all future generations. Maintaining diverse human and ecological environments is our core values, and empowering women and youth is integral in all of our work.
