Mission and Values

Always seeing the forest and the trees. Insuring all we do is driven by impact, integrity and collaboration, to connect Species, People, Planet.

Our Mission

Our mission is to engage all people, especially children, in learning how to make respectful, conscious, positive decisions about the planet we share. Further, to explore how we each can make a difference in environmental quality and protecting biodiversity. We realize people must first understand their place in the global community and environment, and in turn the impact of their actions — to that end real-world, practical education is fundamental to our approach
