Our Mission

Learn More

Building capacity in the world’s most treasured locations to help local stakeholders leverage and manage increasing global ecotourism and the additional pressures it brings.

Safety and Preparedness – As the number of individuals exposed to the risks associated with experiencing these places increases, so does the need for stewards to prepare for the eventuality of incidents.

Awareness and Risk Reduction – Through our courses, we explore and build appreciation for the diverse values of natural areas. We discuss not only the threats people face, but also those people bring to the landscapes they love, and how to minimize them all.

Resiliency – We improve opportunity for local peoples to access and develop sustainable livelihoods, and care for their families, neighbors, and local landscapes.
