About One World Conservation:
OWCs (www.oneworldconservation.org) roots began in Zimbabwe, Africa, with the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force. The African organization, founded in 2001, opened its U.S. Operations in 2008, based out of Austin, Texas, as an education and awareness conservation program, but it was inevitable that the U.S. branch of the organization, more focused on captive wildlife issues regarding endangered and exotic species, had to branch off from its Zimbabwean ties in order to focus on more global issues facing, not only Zimbabwean wildlife, but also the wildlife of the world.
Since its establishment in 2010, OWC has garnered a large online presence and grown beyond the reach of Texas to take on campaigns across the United States, as well as other countries. OWC has been mentioned in the New York Times, the Associated Press, the Washington Post, among various other news outlets and is currently working toward NGO status at its branch in Kenya to begin conservation work on the ground.
