What makes RSCF a very different kind of conservation organization is our lean, hands-on approach, whereby we minimize bureaucracy and administration. RSCF’s small, focused team conceives and executes its programs, doing everything from research in the field, to managing endangered species breeding programs, to writing scientific papers, fundraising and all administrative functions. While RSCF operations are funded by diverse sources, many of our conservation programs are supported by contributions restricted for specific purposes—such as field work in a particular place, habitat acquisition, or endangered species husbandry. In such cases, 100% of incoming funds flow directly to those programs, with no part reserved for general operations or administration. Because RSCF’s staff handles most administrative tasks, administrative costs typically total less than 3% of annual revenue.
