We focus our efforts on rare habitats and endangered species, including primates, cranes, tigers, and turtles.

At Community Conservation Inc., we believe that local people are the best stewards of their lands. We promote the highest level of participation by the local community, and encourage the formation of community-based organizations that empower local people to manage their own projects and lands with minimal outside influence.

We act as a catalyst to create community-based organizations in the places where biodiversity is threatened. We bring enthusiasm and information to local residents, highlighting the uniqueness of their area’s forests and wildlife, and then ask for their help to protect them. No community that we have approached has ever said no.
