Ecosystems such as forests, wetlands or peatlands have developed over millions of years and provide not only habitat for wildlife but also play an important role as carbon sinks and climate stabilizers.
Poverty and lacking education are main drivers for ecosystem destruction, losing to wildlife and people losing their livelihoods. By financing ecosystem protection, local people get access to employment opportunities as rangers and researchers
as well as education.
We partner with local organizations in Global South countries to safeguard ecosystems, especially rainforests. Our aim is to prevent their destruction and protect native wildlife through initiatives such as the creation of national parks and securing land titles for long-term conservation of these precious natural resources and their inhabitants.
All projects involve local communities, giving help to self-help. Cultural traditions are strictly considered.
Only projects with high ethical standards and fair wages are chosen after a careful due diligence.
The land titles have to be clearly stated. There has to be a monitoring strategy in place to protect wildlife and prevent illegal hunting and logging.
The land purchased is not owned by Impact Hero but the land belongs to local communities or organizations. Land owners sell their land voluntarily after long conversations; land-grabbing is strictly prohibited.
All our projects support SDGs and have a special focus
tailored to their region.
