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.
We work with limited resources and cannot solve every problem, or problems of interest in every place, but we can insure our projects have wide ranging impact. Our program strategy is to create successful projects, and then replicate and partner to scale, leaving a blueprint for others to use and evolve.
Our Field Conservation Programs are critical to our connecting species with people with our shared planet. Partnerships are the foundation of our first step. We hope our models of collaboration are adopted, replicated and expanded to help others make meaningful impact.
Learning drives understanding. We realize people must first understand their place in the global community and environment, and in turn the impact of their actions before positive change can occur.
