CGCT’s key partner in Nepal is the Chandra Gurung Conservation Foundation (CGCF), which formed at the same time and for similar reasons as CGCT. Its members are dedicated conservation leaders in Nepal, many of whom worked with and were mentored by Dr. Gurung over the course of his career. (Photos of CGCF members above)
Recognizing that the vision we share goes far beyond CGCT and CGCF’s lifetimes, we have set up an Endowment Fund to sustain “people-based conservation” in Chandra’s name long into the future. CGCT transferred over $3,200 raised in the USA to the Chandra Gurung Endowment Fund in Nepal, under the management of CGCF. Chandra’s family members and supporters have contributed as well.
