"Nature loves courage.
You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles."

Our Mission

The Lupunaluz philosophy is conservation with opportunity, dedicated to demonstrating that forests have greater value standing than cut down. We firmly believe conservation must provide real opportunity for traditional custodians. Through research, education and a commitment to indigenous knowledge holders, we endeavour to create a conservation model that empowers local communities and protects the natural environment.

The Lupunaluz Foundation is committed to transparency, accountability and ethical investment. We work to enhance not distort the dynamics of the local economy. Contributors to the Lupunaluz Foundation can be confident their investment has a direct and positive impact with minimal administrative allocation.
