Mission: turning wild spaces into safe havens!

Solution & Sponsoring Partners: we actively seek and select partners to advance our mission. These include research partners, field support partners, technology providers, legal advisors, and sponsors. 

Technologies: we make available technologies for the conservation of ecosystems and the protection of flora and fauna. Some technologies are own developments (SERVAL, Cluey App), others are shared or retrieved from partners. We are lowering the cost of integration, ownership, use, and support, by working with our Solution Partners on a modular “system of systems” that can easily be adapted to fit local conditions.


Earnings stem from support fees, donations, heritage, project grants, and other sources of income.
