About Event

On January 25, the Project C:CHANGE 2020 Kilimanjaro Climb will see twelve climbers from all over the world ascend Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, to generate awareness about the illegal wildlife trade and to raise funds in support of The Nature Conservancy (TNC). The funds raised will provide life-transforming support to projects in Asia Pacific and Africa benefitting wildlife, people and nature. Our goals are to raise $150,000 to protect and restore irreplaceable landscape and wildlife for the future. 

Mount Kilimanjaro is the world’s tallest free-standing mountain, with its highest point reaching 19,341 ft. Known as the “Rooftop of Africa,” it is also one of the Seven Summits of the World. It will be a challenging eight-day journey using the Lemosho route to summit Uhuru Peak, battling altitude and five different ecological zones (Cultivation, Rainforest, Heather-Moorland, Alpine Desert, Arctic). The entire trip will be carbon offset and self-funded by the climbers.

About The Nature Conservancy's Asia Pacific Program

Asia Pacific is key to the success of The Nature Conservancy’s (TNC) global work. From coral reefs teeming with marine life in Micronesia, to the vast grasslands of Mongolia, where herders tend to livestock as they have for centuries, the region is a rich mixture of culture, tradition and natural diversity.

But Asia Pacific is also the most-populous and fastest-growing region in the world. As a result, natural abundance on land and at sea is threatened by unsustainable development and a race for food, water, energy and other resources.

Despite its challenges, this region provides unparalleled opportunities to pioneer and scale up conservation solutions for tremendous results. This has been the focus of our decades of experience. Now, we are solving the world’s biggest challenges through four global priorities: tackling climate change; protecting land, water and oceans; providing food and water sustainably; and building healthy cities.
