We believe in mutualistic exchange and collaborative, community-based approaches to conservation.
We partner with local communities, authorities, and educational institutions in order to preserve land intended for commercial use while educating and working with a diverse array of stakeholders on sustainable, nature integrated practices.
Vijo Varghese, Co-Founder and Director
Over the last five years, we have worked with countless organizations, authorities, and community members.
We want to express our gratitude and humility. We have undoubtedly learned just as much, most likely more, than we ever taught. Our projects have been successful through collaborative teams that link international and local people together in the mission of protecting and rehabilitating nature.
Conservation is never done alone. Thank you.
