Preserving Nature with Wildlife-Friendly  Forest Farmers

Our wildlife-friendly farmers are at the heart of our mission to protect vulnerable habitats through our conservation enterprise model. We buy exclusively from farmers who are committed to sustainability, paying up to 50% above market price.  In exchange, they commit to zero deforestation and zero hunting, certifying them as Wildlife Friendly and preserving a slice of one of Southeast Asia’s most diverse ecosystems.

We work exclusively with farming communities located within and on the borders of Cambodia’s wildlife sanctuaries. For generations, farmers have worked the land around these forests. Through our initiative, hundreds of affiliated farmers are now the guardians of 500,000 hectares of remote national park and more than 50 threatened and endangered species in an area traditionally plied by loggers and poachers.
