Ridge to Reef community action for ecocultural conservation
Overview: We promote the interaction of nature and culture and bio-based economies by implementing community-led landscape-scale management plans. Our network framework starts with developing a funding stream that is incubated by public, collective, and corporate investment with the goal to mature into self-sustaining conservation business management. New projects are developed using a networking approach where a mentor group (a Think Tank) is coordinated from network leadership team that works with new projects to help facilitate the process. Our program is not to create a hierarchy but to create a peer-to-peer support group to help NGOs and grassroots conservation efforts scale up to a landscape level.
