I recently came across an initiative of the American Alpine Club, namely the Alpine Conservation Partnership (ACP)(which aims at the restauration and protection of high mountain eco-systems in for example the Himalaya or the Andes).
Now I was just wondering how the ACP is financed. The american Alpine Club isn't really a big Alpine club compared to some European Associations (like for example the Austrian Alpine club with over 400.000 members or the Swiss with 300.000 member), so I would think their financial ressources are rather small as well (or am I wrong?). That's why I was wondering how they manage to finance some (probably expensive) ecological projects around the globe?
Anybody who has an idea of this?
