The Neotropical Grassland Conserveancy
Savannas

  Our network of students and scientists working together to conserve Neotropical grasslands is our most valuable asset.


The Neotropical Grassland Conservancy (NGC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the conservation of savannas, gallery forests, wetlands, and associated ecosystems in Central and South America.

These Neotropical grassland ecosystems are the unheralded counterparts of the rain forest. Comprising over 250 million hectares (~625 million acres), these threatened areas receive little attention yet they host numerous threatened plants and animals, sustain fisheries, and provide water to millions of people.

If these ecological systems are to be preserved, it is the in-country scientists, professors, students and landowners who will best affect attitudes and land use practices and make the difference between habitat preservation and destruction.

The NGC provides equipment and grants to students and scientists from Central and South America working in grassland habitats. Proposals are reviewed quarterly by a panel of scientists and are awarded based on merit and need. We encourage growth of local conservation programs and create lasting relationships with funded research groups.

In 2003-2004, we supported projects and students in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay, and Venezuela. Projects focused on birds, frogs, snakes, lizards, fish, and mammals. The NGC also funded the publication of an important conservation book and sent three students to an international conference.

Our philosophy promotes cost-effective ways to impact conservation efforts of grasslands, empowers local people and launches careers, and creates a valuable network of promising scientists and students.

You can help by donating equipment and becoming a member. We always need donations of binoculars, GPS units, mist nets, camping supplies, cameras, digital cameras, and video cameras. If you have something else you would like to donate, please contact us. Membership donations buy equipment or support student grants. One hundred percent of your donation goes towards our programs.

Our dedicated interns and board members volunteer their time and donate all administrative costs, so every dollar you give goes directly toward conservation. Donors of equipment or money receive tax benefits as well as descriptions of the funded research projects and awarded student grants at the end of the year.


IN MEMORY OF LINDA V. MOORHOUSE
 
Linda Moorhouse, Chairperson   Linda V. Moorhouse
Grant Development Chairperson

It is with great sorrow we acknowledge the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Linda V. Moorhouse in December 2009. Linda was on our Board of Directors for more than six years, and one of our most significant contributors for almost a decade. She combined a love of the tropics with a deep desire to make sure the grassland habitat was preserved for future generations. Linda believed deeply in supporting the next generation of scientists in South America and showed her dedication through generous donations and hours spent developing a world-class database to track our students and their projects.

Linda made a big difference for so many students and in the conservation of Neotropical grasslands. We miss her deeply.

Donations in Linda’s memory may be sent to:
