Conservation Cooperatives

We create Conservation Cooperatives (CCs) - community-led organizations who engage in management or co-management of protected areas. These CCs act as the platform for which we conserve biodiversity by targeting the root causes of biodiversity loss - rural poverty and inequality. Our Conservation Cooperatives take conservation action to protect forests and wildlife while acting as a mechanism to improve livelihoods, access to healthcare, and overall human well-being.

We demonstrate the power of initiatives that are Locally Designed, Locally Managed, and that lead to Local Benefit.
