Key Conservation is helping global conservation organizations receive critical funding and support through a platform that provides real-time updates on critical, short-term, and long-term campaigns.
Every individual has the ability to make a difference in the world and the Key Conservation platform provides the tools to empower it. Designed by wildlife biologists, the Key platform is a place where conservationists can come to find real-time global support from individuals when all other traditional means fall short. Key is unique in that it provides transparent and real-time interactions between conservation organizations and supporters. This insight provides the supporter with a more comprehensive look at what day-to-day conservation efforts and struggles truly look like and showcases how even small actions from one individual can lead to tremendous impact.
SEE HOW KEY WORKS
The Key App will have a scrolling live feed that updates as needs from conservationists occur around the world in real-time. Supporters will be transported to the front lines alongside our conservationists and be given actionable steps they can take to make a real difference right then and there.
WAYS FOR ORGANIZATIONS
TO GET HELP
WAYS FOR SUPPORTERS
TO GIVE HELP
GIVE YOUR SKILLS
The Skilled Impact feature enables supporters to give their professional skills to help conservation organizations. For example, a graphic designer could help design an outreach campaign, a mechanic could help fix a patrol vehicle or a drone operator could assist with collecting data on a remote study area.
Tapping into these skills empowers supporters to share their expertise and experience with conservationists that need them to take their mission to the next level. Our hope is that sharing skills will help create a community around the work being done as well as a lifelong connection between an individual and a conservation organization.
GET INVOLVED LOCALLY
The In-Person feature allows supporters to be alerted to real-time volunteer opportunities in their area through geo-based push notifications. This feature updates automatically as supporters travel around the world, alerting them to opportunities within a customized range. For example, if a conservation organization needs help pushing their patrol vehicle out of the mud or they want to alert locals of a sea turtle hatchling release they can send out a push notification to supporters within a set radius. Here supporters can also see on a map what conservation organizations are around them, search a different city to see what organizations and events are going on there, learn about events coming up in their area and local groups they can join to help make a difference in their own community.
The Funding feature allows supporters to see exactly what conservation organizations need for issues happening in real-time. Each post will have itemized requests from the field and supporters can choose what they would like to give funds to. Supporters also have the option to give unrestricted funding so the organization can use it to pay for critical needs like salaries, travel, long-term goals, and more. With each contribution, supporters send messages of encouragement to conservationists in the field!
FEEDBACK FROM THE FIELD
After the conservation organization has put the supporter's contribution to use they will send back a photo or video showing exactly how they made a difference.
