We began with a promise to remember that humans are a deserving and integral part of nature.

Our Approach

We approach conservation holistically, addressing the biggest threats to life on earth. We focus on providing simple solutions to the leading causes of wildlife extinctions and human deaths.

WE BUILD STOVES

Building fuel-efficient stoves saves human lives and butterfly habitat.

We grow sustainable food

Growing food with aquaponics makes food accessible to all and uses 90% fewer resources than conventional agriculture.

5,000th stove built in Mexico’s Monarch Butterfly Reserve

We chose the monarch butterfly as our logo because, to us, it is so much more than just beautiful. The monarch symbolizes nature’s perfection, the fragility of all life on earth, and the idea that, though our actions can destroy something delicate, they also have the power to save it.
