Who We Are
Grenada Fund for Conservation, Inc. (GFC) is a legally registered non-profit, non-governmental organization which was established in 2008. The GFC is the successor to the Rare Enterprises, Grenada project implemented from October 2005 to December 2008 by Rare, which is based in Arlington, Virginia, with financial support from the US-based MacArthur Foundation.
Grenada Fund for Conservation Inc. was established with the aim of helping to promote and protect Grenada’s environment, respecting the delicate balance that exists between natural resources and human needs by ensuring that people are able to benefit from the conservation of these resources in a sustainable manner. It does this by working in partnership with local, regional and international conservation agencies.
GFC engages in advocacy and lobbying efforts aimed at effecting necessary legislative changes that offer greater protection to endangered national and trans-boundary species, and undertakes projects at the school and community level to raise public awareness about the environment.
The Mission of the GFC is “to inspire and contribute to the conservation of Grenada’s natural resources, while enabling local communities to benefit from its conservation, through education, advocacy and creation of sustainable jobs.”
In the pursuit of its mission the Fund will work through a series of collaborative relationships with a wide cross-section of local and overseas organizations working towards the same goal, sharing technical, physical and financial resources.
To raise the profile of Grenada’s natural resources and their long term benefits to the population
To provide technical expertise and assistance to groups and organizations engaged in environmental protection and public awareness activities geared at promoting and conserving the natural environment
To fund and implement environmental conservation activities nationwide, in collaboration with local and overseas partners and organizations
To create sustainable jobs that directly link environmental conservation to the tourism industry and benefit residents in areas of high conservation concern, thereby contributing to poverty alleviation in rural communities
