Forests, species conservation and indigenous peoples

The foundation is committed to the preservation of wilderness areas, especially primary forests, the protection of endangered wild animals, indigenous communities and the protection of their land rights.

We are particularly involved in regions where these topics overlap.

This has resulted in a focus on some of the large global forest regions of the world, whereby we are particularly involved where we bring personal experience on site or are involved through longstanding contacts.

For most regions, we only provide information or support. The focus of our work on site is in some forest areas in Africa. Here our work is very closely linked to elephant protection issues.

The foundation is based in Wiesbaden, Germany.
