Our mission is to enable communities to balance ecosystem protection and economic development by pioneering a model for sustainable conservation

We believe grass-roots change within communities that is participatory and self-imposed (rather than externally-driven) is more likely to be sustainable over time, benefiting people, elephants and natural resource systems.

We are committed to developing a sustainable model for wildlife conservation in Sri Lanka. Our focus is on helping people, elephants and other wildlife co-exist peacefully.

We are highly committed to developing practical solutions that mitigate wildlife-human conflict, environmental damage, climate change, and biodiversity loss, and that address sustainable livelihoods, land use, and rural poverty issues. These issues are intertwined and must be addressed simultaneously to achieve lasting and meaningful conservation.
