ABOUT ECOLIFE CONSERVATION
ECOLIFE Conservation® is an organization dedicated to a world in which people and nature prosper together. We focus on integrating community health and environmental sustainability through simple, adaptive approaches.
ECOLIFE® was established with the belief that our communities are only truly sustainable in association with healthy, resilient natural environments.
The number one cause of species extinction is loss of habitats – which are resources that make homes for wildlife. To reduce the rates of habitat loss, we need to address what is consuming our open spaces. Overwhelmingly habitats are lost to expanding rural agriculture. To talk about conservation without talking about reducing our agricultural footprint is irresponsible.
Another major cause of habitat loss is the harvest of wood for fuel and cooking fires. Smoke from these cooking fires is the largest environmental killer of people. Simply constructed stoves can reduce fuel use, forest loss and save lives.
With these two programs we can unite the needs of people and their resources and have a tremendous impact in protecting natural resources.
Our future depends on our ability to efficiently use our precious resources and safeguard the environments which provide us our basic needs. The needs of people and nature are not in competition, they go hand in hand.
At ECOLIFE®, we focus on using conservation as a tool that is adaptable and integrative rather than confrontational. Our approach matches simple technologies with education to improve upon our use of precious natural resources such as water, land, and forest.
