OUR WORK IN CONSERVATION & ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

In order to improve environmental outcomes in the communities in which we work, we focus our program on three key areas:

 

Environmental Education
Through integration with our existing education programs, we are supporting environmental awareness for school children and local communities.

 

Snow Leopard Conservation
There are as few as 3500 snow leopards left in the world and many of these are found across the Himalaya

In Ladakh we are supporting the construction of snow-leopard safe corrals in the Zanskar Valley, preventing snow leopards from accessing livestock and therefore preventing the death of snow leopards at the hands of farmers. This program not only supports local conservation but promotes sustainable livelihoods and environmental awareness.

 

Emergency response
We are supporting community-based responses to natural disasters and climate change adaptation in the communities where we work
