Together we protect and restore globally important forests
Wild Forests and Fauna targets efforts in areas that have the highest global impact. Intact forests are considered the “last of the best” forests in the world based on their role in protecting watersheds, sheltering the world’s biodiversity, and sequestering carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
We work directly with communities and local leaders on the front lines of globally threatened forests with the following approach:
PROTECT – Direct conservation practices like land acquisitions and ecotourism, as well as long-term efforts such as education and capacity building.
RESTORE – Holistic interventions that reforest the land while developing sustainable economies and maintaining the culture of local communities.
SUPPORT – Identify promising leaders and support their conservation goals through business development, financing and project management.
