Who we are
We are a global collective of journalists, photographers, documentarians, educators, farmers, researchers, and teachers that believe Indigenous and local knowledge is a keystone to repairing the loss of biodiversity in our world.
Indigenous people and local communities protect 21% of land on earth—approximately the size of Africa—and 80% of the world’s biodiversity.
Research shows that Indigenous peoples’ and local communities’ traditional practices play an outsized role in sustaining the world’s biodiversity. These practices illuminate solutions that the public, scientists, and policymakers need to protect life on earth.
We use solutions journalism to bring news of these methods and their impacts to a wider audience. These stories increase public awareness of biodiversity loss and reveal strategies to effectively restore global biodiversity together.
