What we do
Our focus is on creating models for future conservation.
So we deal with questions:
How can people and wildlife share a common environment?
How can corridors for wildlife be created through populated areas?
Often answers are easy to find but difficult
to implement. So we are thinking and experimenting on solutions, creating transferable models for at least parts of the solutions.
We believe, that conservation is not possible without integrating the local, often tribal, population. If people live in poverty, without even basic supply of food and water, without medical care and education, conservation in that areas will not work properly. So our focus over the years became more and more on helping these people in wildlife areas.
How can we do that?
First step is on looking what these people need simply by asking them, but also by showing possibilities they might not even know about.
We have developed some skills over the years we can offer for support:
Easy to handle technologies like solar cooker, bottle lamps or water filter
Knowledge about reforestation, forest gardening, Moringa and other helpful plants.
A lot of experience about working with children and teaching them about environment.
Knowledge about recycling, re-using, reducing, rethinking of modern products like plastic.
Some knowledge about starting a business with local products. And for that we have access to the European market.
