About Us

Our Goals & Methods

KACF Core Goals and Methods_png.png

The Katie Adamson Conservation Fund transcends the role of a typical endangered animal conservation organization. Our mission encompasses a spectrum of impactful initiatives that extend beyond preservation alone. While our central objective revolves around the protection of endangered species, our approach entails a multifaceted strategy.

Our core emphasis remains on safeguarding endangered animals. However, our approach involves a synergistic blend of elements such as youth education, fostering community sustainability, leveraging virtual reality technology for immersive education, and facilitating career advancement for individuals who are impassioned about the species we strive to aid.


Who We Are

The Katie Adamson Conservation Fund is a community-based conservation organization based in the Denver, Colorado area.  It was established in 2014 by Zookeeper Dave Johnson after we lost a dear friend and conservation ally, Katie Adamson, in her battle with cancer.  Since that day we have been dedicated to a global mission of wildlife protection and cultural compassion. 


As a powerful group of all ages and mindsets, we want to leave this world a better place for those that follow.  The species we share this planet with deserve protection and dedication, and together we are doing everything we can to ensure they have a place and a voice.


Katie would want it this way!

What We Do

Together with you, we want to save this world.  By working together we can ensure that our fellow creatures have a community that cherishes them and protects them.  We travel and educate, we laugh and create change, we empower and embolden.  We are an organization of people who help animals by helping people.  It is our conservation imperative.


Join us as we teach at schools, build beehive fences to protect communities and gardens from elephants, train people how to sustain themselves without poaching wildlife, set up speaker presentations and create fundraisers, climb mountains and run races.  There is no insignificant species and no journey too far to travel. 


Help us to spread this conservation karma from shore to peak.  We are more powerful when our voices echo together.
