Key Conservation is helping conservationists gain support and funding in real-time through our mobile app. The app has a scrolling live feed that will update as needs from conservationists occur globally and will provide three ways for supporters to give help. Supporters can give their professional skills, give money and be alerted to real-time volunteer opportunities wherever they are in the world through geo-based push notifications. After a contribution has been put to use the conservation organization will send a photo/video update to the supporter to show how their individual support made a difference.

What We Do
|The Key Conservation app is being built for conservationists by conservationists. We understand the monumental challenges that conservation organizations like ASAP Partners face, and how some organizations are truly in survival mode working to keep things functioning. With that in mind, we are building tools into the app that will help tackle those challenges, especially those that cannot be planned for. Conservation is extremely unpredictable and through the Key app, organizations will be able to reach out to a global audience in real-time and tap into avenues of support that many organizations may not have had access to previously.
The skilled impact section of the app will allow conservation organizations to connect with skilled professionals who can offer pro-bono support, helping them with needs that would normally be quite costly and which they might not know how to find. For example, a graphic designer could help create an outreach campaign to reach the local community, a drone operator could help with remote research efforts or a mechanic could help fix a patrol vehicle.
The in-person section of the app allows organizations to be able to send out geo-based push notifications to a set demographic in real-time to quickly get the word out and receive help for local volunteer opportunities. For example, the team needs another set of hands to push a vehicle out of the mud or they have a sea turtle hatchling release event that evening, they can get the word out to the right people immediately.
Lastly, the funding part of the app allows organizations to ask for funds for unplanned expenses which also allows supporters to see exactly how their support made a difference.
Our mission is to help increase funding, build capacity and raise the profile of conservation organizations around the world no matter their current funding or personnel situation. We want to help put global supporters onto the front lines with conservationists with direct actionable steps to help so they can truly see the challenges conservationists face and how they can help on a larger scale.
