Our partnership with Anheuser-Busch Companies is focused on supporting CI’s biodiversity conservation efforts.
- In 2007, the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund and CI continue their extensive partnership with a recent commitment by the Fund to support seven CI projects around the world. Whether these funds are used to support projects that aim to combat the illegal wildlife trade in Asia or to educate the local populations of Bogota on the importance of conservation, these grants are providing critical resources to a number of CI's programmatic initiatives.
- In September 2004, Anheuser-Busch supports workshop in Wuhan, China which brought together leading scientists to develop an action plan to save China’s critically endangered river dolphin, the Baiji (Lipotes vexillifer), from extinction. (press release)
