  • Indigenous Knowledge Project by Conservation Leaders Network

    The Conservation Leaders Network is working on a special project called the Indigenous Knowledge Project. This project is all about learning and documenting the valuable knowledge that indigenous communities have about nature and the environment. We are teaming up with indigenous people to understand their traditional ways of caring for the land and animals. This project is like a treasure hunt for knowledge! We want to collect and save the wisdom passed down through generations in these communities. We aim to document this unique knowledge and ensure it is noticed. We believe that by listening to and respecting the wisdom of indigenous communities, we can make better decisions for protecting our planet. This project aims to build stronger connections between different ways of understanding and caring for the Earth. We see the knowledge of indigenous people as a valuable guide for creating a more sustainable and harmonious world.
