HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS

There are three key areas of focus in our work with communities to protect and improve the Himalayan environment.

 

Environmental education

We are supporting school children, families, and local communities to gain vital environmental knowledge, especially around adaptation to the impact of climate change.

 

Harmonious co-existence with wildlife

We have a special focus on snow leopard conservation as many of these vulnerable creatures call the Himalaya home.

In the Indian Himalayan region of Ladakh, we are supporting the construction of livestock enclosures to preserve critical livelihoods and prevent snow leopards from dangerous encounters with farmers defending their animals. Similarly, to deal with the growing conflict between people and brown bears, we are working on safe initiatives to prevent human-bear interaction in villages.

 

Emergency response

When natural disasters strike, we are there to support community-based responses to help people and wildlife across the Himalaya to recover from the devastating damage.
