Our Values

Our work is guided by three key values. These help us to meet our mission of protecting biodiversity, in ways that respect local communities, embrace science, and empower others to safeguard nature.

Lead with science
Lead with science

We prioritize science-led conservation, monitoring and evaluation. All of our on-the-ground work integrates research that builds knowledge to guide better conservation practice, and simultaneously helps to build the capacity of early-career colleagues. Our research places particular importance on the social dimension of conservation.

Lend a voice to others
Lend a voice to others

Conservation must empower groups that have been traditionally under-represented in the sector, including women, Indigenous communities, young people, and the rural communities who live alongside wildlife. We support others to engage in conservation, and help to ensure that rural livelihoods, and experiences are central to policy and practice.

Speak truth to power
Speak truth to power

Nepal faces a rapidly changing environment, a complex political landscape, and frequent development-conservation trade-offs. In response, we use our science and position to speak publicly about challenging and controversial issues that are central to the survival of biodiversity and rural communities.

Wildlife conservation conferences, wildlife trade reports, and important policy documents hardly miss pangolins these days – here they have focused attention. However, the frontline authorities and communities living with the pangolins know very little about them.
Pangolins, known as unique scaly anteaters, are on the verge of extinction due to poaching and habitat destruction. Experts have warned that some pangolin species, including Chinese pangolins, could go extinct if the threats they face continue. Nepal is home to two pangolin species: the Chinese pangolin and the Indian pangolin; both species reside outside protected areas for the most part.
