We believe that we accomplish our mission by ensuring that volunteers and students are an integral part of our work in the field. Our conservation efforts are in response to a rapid decline of countless endangered species around the world, and in a loss of global biodiversity. We believe in fostering human connection and building bridges that allow for cross-cultural understanding.
We accomplish our mission by:
•Protecting critical wilderness areas to ensure safe and healthy habitats for threatened and endangered species
• Promoting biodiversity through the sharing of information
•Establishing direct links between students in the field and their classmates at home
•Placing students in remote village home-stays to assist with education and community development projects
•Conducting crucial field research of endangered species
•Fostering world peace through greater cross-cultural understanding and interaction
•Instilling our students with a sense of ownership of the planet and the problems it faces
•Empowering young adults to take an active role in conservation, community issues and personal health
•Allowing personal growth through group building and individual experiences
•Creating a sense of global community for students and volunteers
Our vision is to continue the expansion of our grassroots movement and alter global attitudes towards the environment and biodiversity. Our vision includes a global community that lives in harmony with the Earth and all its inhabitants , where the fragile web of life is not threatened by rampant and unrestrained human development. We envision a world where the welfare of all its inhabitants is considered in the frame of global progress.
