Stories that matter

Stories help us to make sense of the world. In conservation, the stories are often familiar – powerless local communities fighting a losing battle against big corporate greed destroying or stealing their land; yet another species being pushed ever closer to the brink of extinction while we look on, powerless to do anything to stop it; the slightly eccentric field scientist dedicating a life to understanding and conserving one small, mysterious species that most people have never heard of…

We have all these and more. But we also want to bring you stories of success and stories of hope. Conservation really does work, when it’s done well. Change can happen and we want to see more of it.

We draw inspiration from the people we work with – conservationists on the frontline, dedicated researchers, artists, activists, enlightened funders, and many more.
