Company participates in $15 million matching challenge grant campaign

Global Rescue will extend its partnership with Global Wildlife Conservation (GWC) for the 10th year, reflecting the company’s commitment to exploration and conservation efforts worldwide.

Global Rescue will sponsor GWC’s Wild Night for Wildlife on April 19, 2018, in Austin, Texas, a popular event celebrating GWC’s exploration of wildlands and protection of the world’s most threatened wildlife. Through June 30, 2018, the Sheth Sangreal Foundation will match 100 percent of all donations to GWC, including event sponsorships. Interested donors can go to GWC’s website and give online (https://www.globalwildlife.org/donate/) or over the phone at 512-593-1883.

Global Wildlife Conservation protects endangered species and habitats through science-based field action. GWC and its partners organize biodiversity expeditions to unexplored areas to further the organization’s mission of conserving the diversity of life on Earth by safeguarding habitat and protecting wildlife.

Through the partnership, Global Wildlife Conservation staff and partners have access to Global Rescue’s advisory, field rescue, and evacuation services in emergencies in remote regions around the world.

“Global Rescue ensures that our scientists and conservationists in the field have access to lifesaving help if anything goes wrong in the many remote locations where we work across the planet,” said Wes Sechrest, CEO and chief scientist of GWC. “Our team and partners can travel the world to protect threatened species and habitats knowing that Global Rescue’s field rescue, medical, security, transport and intelligence services are behind them.”

“Global Rescue is committed to supporting the critical work of GWC’s critical science-based wildlife conservation activities,” said Daniel L. Richards, CEO of Global Rescue. “GWC’s dedication to preserving the world’s biodiversity is achieving tangible conservation results, and we could not be more proud to provide our support to such an exceptional organization.” Richards has served on GWC’s Board of Directors since it was founded.
