Conservation Centers for Species Survival

White Oak is a member of Conservation Centers for Species Survival (C2S2), a group of large conservation facilities in North America dedicated to cooperative conservation and research for the advancement of species conservation.  Established in 2005, C2S2 applies its unique resources for the survival of species with special needs; especially those requiring large living areas, natural group sizes, minimal public disturbance and scientific research.  Part of its current priorities is the study and development of sustainable populations of various ungulates, birds, carnivores and the desert tortoise.  Additionally, C2S2 explores unique, alternative ways to manage small populations through groups or big herds as well as to improve the stewardship of its more than 25,000 acres of land.  C2S2 has a Memorandum of Agreement with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
