Mission and Vision
Natura International is committed to saving natural lands and ecosystems through the creation of parks and reserves, and creating the local capacity to manage and protect these. A particular focus is to help municipalities and communities protect their water through the conservation of their forests
We strive for a planet Earth where the diversity of life thrives, and human lifestyles are in balance with our environment and the integrity of all life. Preserving our planet’s health is an urgent matter for human generations to be able to live on this planet, and to sustain the extraordinary diversity and beauty of life on earth.
Methods and Principles
How do we achieve this mission and vision?
- We believe in bottom-up action through the dedicated efforts of our diverse staff located on the ground in key biodiversity regions in Latin America;
- We work in collaboration with government, communities and local partners to achieve our conservation results, while recognizing the need for communities to benefit from the conservation programs and sustainable management of natural resources; and
- We protect the value of ecosystem services such as the provision of clean water to create methods for communities to conserve the natural environments around them.
