Mission Statement

Our aim is to create a sustainable future for the Amazon rainforest by providing sustainable solutions to the environmental, social and economic issues faced by the Amazon and its people.

Description

We have a dual approach: Conservation Research with a focus on the rainforest, and Sustainable Initiatives to work with local communities.

Through our conservation research we seek to answer 2 key questions, how much could regenerating rainforest contribute to sustaining and conserving rainforest life in all its diversity? And what is needed to maximise the contribution of regenerating rainforest to sustainable futures for tropical forests in both in the Amazon and globally?

We strive to create a realistic long-term model for protecting the bio-diversity of the rainforest; one that fully involves the people who live here.
This means encouraging and providing support for sustainable ways of making a living from the rainforest. Rather than feeling the pressure to exploit their environment, we want the local communities to realise its importance as a long-term resource, vital to their prosperity.

This has to be a collaborative effort. On the one hand developing education programmes, on the other, building up enterprises that involve local know-how and harness global concern.
