The Himalayan landscape is a natural beauty like no other and a precious home to both people and wildlife. We are working with local communities to adapt to the effects of climate change and protect the environment they need for survival
Vulnerable snow leopards left in the wild
Livestock enclosures built over 5 years to protect the snow leopard and critical livelihoods
Schools have formed Eco-clubs to learn about adapting to the impact of climate change
There are three key areas of focus in our work with communities to protect and improve the Himalayan environment.
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.
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.
We rely heavily on the generosity of supporters to reach the most vulnerable people in the Himalaya. Thank you for your support to provide life-changing opportunities for remote communities
