The virtual receptionist provider AnswerConnect has donated to Yosemite Conservancy – the only nonprofit dedicated to preserving Yosemite National Park’s resources – to help support their crucial work in protecting the natural beauty and diverse wildlife of one of America’s best loved national parks.
In 2022, Yosemite Conservancy funded 60 high-priority projects and programs in Yosemite and provided $14 million in total support to the park. These projects focused on revitalizing wetlands and wilderness areas; restoring beloved and spectacular trails and historic structures; and enabling scientists to study endangered species and to protect meadows, giant sequoias, and vulnerable wildlife. The Conservancy also supported a wide variety of programs focused on youth education and environmental stewardship to create the next generation of park stewards.
Yosemite Conservancy Chief Development Officer Marion Ingersoll said, “Work funded by the Conservancy is widely visible throughout the park, in trail rehabilitation, wildlife protection, and habitat restoration and education programs for people of all ages. We also create opportunities for people from all over the world to connect with the park through our outdoor adventures, volunteer programs, and bookstores. And we are delighted to have the generous support of AnswerConnect for Yosemite this month.”
Hester McQueen, Head of Impact & Mattering at AnswerConnect, said, “We’re proud to support Yosemite Conservancy. Their tireless dedication to protecting one of America’s best-loved national parks is vital for both the wildlife within the park and the millions of people who visit every year. Our donation will help Yosemite Conservancy to protect the natural landscape and conserve the local wildlife for future generations.”
