Welcome to the home of The Conservancy Project

We are excited that you are here! We can’t wait to get to know you better. Please excuse our dust, as we bring up this site

The Conservancy Project is currently a research project with the ultimate aim of creating a brand new 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that will serve the interests of non-government organizations (NGO) that fund, oversee, or execute conservation project work across the United States. Larry Rogers currently chairs the study group, with help from three other professional engineers/designers who share a passion for the wildest places in America and the flora and fauna that call those places home.

The Conservancy Project is actively seeking volunteers with certain unique skills applicable to conservation work, philanthropy and fundraising, project and program management, wildlife biology, and related fields. If you have an interest in our mission and the critical skills we need, please visit our Contact Page (coming soon) to request an application package.
