Conservation is about people, as much as it is about wildlife. Successful conservation strategies must consider the complex inter-linkages between people and the environment.

We believe that a long-term approach and a local perspective are vital ingredients of successful conservation. Most importantly, local communities must be involved. After all, successful conservation should contribute to the wellbeing of people, as well as of biodiversity and ecosystems.

Our conservation approaches highlight and support the rights of local communities connected to marine resources.

Our environmental education programs foster awareness of and engagement in environmental issues, while empowering communities to control the future of their own natural resources.

Our education development programs enhance educational access and facilities, providing children with new opportunities and helping to break the cycle of poverty.
