Over the years of our conservation efforts in the Eastern Himalayas, we have realised that Conservation initiatives will succeed long- term in the mission of conserving the biodiversity only when there is a broader and deeper engagement with the communities. Our Communities are our future.

The distinctive richness of the Eastern Himalayas can be attributed to its colorful biodiversity, numerous niche ecosystems, and vibrant communities. Understanding the dynamics, structure, and functioning of these systems adds an enormous complexity to not only their conservation and restoration, but also in engaging stakeholders and finding innovative long-term solutions.
