Trees, Water & People was founded in 1998 by Stuart Conway and Richard Fox. TWP is staffed by a group of dedicated conservationists who feel strongly about helping communities to better manage the natural resources upon which their long-term well-being depends. Our work is guided by two core beliefs:
1) Natural resources are best protected when local people play an active role in their care and management 2) Preserving local ecosystems is essential for the ongoing social, economic, and environmental health of communities everywhere.Trees, Water & People’s mission is to improve people’s lives by helping communities protect, conserve, and manage the natural resources upon which their long-term well-being depends.

More than 30 years ago, Zimbabwe’s black rhino population was decreasing at an alarming rate from intense poaching. In response, a group of concerned individuals and institutions founded the Black Rhino Foundation In part because of the Black Rhino Foundation’s support, poaching was virtually eliminated and Zimbabwe’ black rhino population began to stabilize. Recognizing that the escalating crisis facing all five rhino species was not receiving the attention it deserved, the Black Rhino Foundation expanded its mission and became the International Rhino Foundation (IRF). The International Rhino Foundation is dedicated to the survival of the world’s rhino species through conservation and research.
