We are the Cornell Nature Society from Cornell University!

Our mission statement states:

"Our club seeks to conserve and enrich the environment... we aim to improve and defend the livelihood of animals... We wish to promote awareness, to take action on these principles and to share the importance of sustaining nature with those who cherish the earth."

The Virunga National Park is Africa's oldest national park and is situated in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Increase in the Ivory trade and oil industries exposes many elephants, gorillas, and park rangers to life-threatening situations on a daily basis.

A few of the ongoing projects include:

  • The training of Bloodhounds to protect park grounds
  • Stopping the slaughter of elephants due to the illegal ivory trade
  • Caring for gorilla orphans affected by poachers and animal traffickers
  • The Fallen Rangers Fund which supports the widows and children of rangers killed in active duty, and
  • Gorilla and Wildlife Protection provides rangers with the proper gear and rations so they can continue to serve the wildlife.

In order to promote our love for animals and the environment, we are fundraising on campus and through this online campaign to raise awareness for wildlife, land preservation and ranger safety in Virunga National Park.

Join us in this cause! Every bit counts!
