Our Approach

Our approach fosters holistic and sustainable development in which conservation, human wellbeing, and community development are mutually reinforced. EcoLogic facilitates participatory processes for community-level design and application of practical, locally-contextualized strategies that address both conservation needs and the needs of community members.

Core Principle

The active leadership and participation of local communities in conservation is not only socially just, but essential for the long-term conservation of our planet.


Rural communities lead in the creation of a sustainable world for both people and nature.
